We're living in uncertain times during the COVID-19 outbreak, but Ohio is gonna get through it together – and have some fun along the way.
Dr. Amy Acton has become a household name these past few weeks as she helps navigate Ohio through an unprecedented global pandemic.
It's completely uncharted waters for the director of the state's department of health, but she's been a calming presence to some and now, she's earning recognition for it as she this year’s Spirit of Columbus Award by the Columbus Foundation.

A New Low
This crisis is hitting all of us in different ways, but I'm proud to say it hasn't resulted in me consuming dog treats.
Unfortunately, Ohio State basketball video coordinator Kyle Davis can't say the same.
Ive officially reached a new quarantine low. Apparently labels are important... because I accidentally just ate 2/3 of a sleeve of dog treats. Someone tell that dog anything in the pantry is fair game unless their name is on it #COVID19 pic.twitter.com/xveVLvYHaS— Kyle Davis (@The_Kyle_Davis) April 17, 2020
On the flip side, if he downed 2/3rds of a sleeve before noticing, they must have been pretty damn good, right? Maybe we should reconsider not eating dog treats. Are we missing out on something?
If they were good, finish the sleeve. No judgment here.

Take Me Home
We haven't seen a three-way player quite like Chris Gamble since he basically never left the field during the 2002 season, so enjoy some highlights – offense, defense and special teams.
