Buckeyes fan with muscular dystrophy holds trophy after win

Tuesday January 13th, 2015

Jacob Jarvis, a 15-year-old boy with muscular dystrophy, has built a special connection with Urban Meyer and the Ohio State Buckeyes football team. He has been with the team throughout its miraculous run -- three wins against three Heisman finalists with a third-string quarterback -- and was present at AT&T Stadium for the team's national championship game win over Oregon. 

After the game, Jarvis got to celebrate the Buckeyes' big win while holding the trophy on the field as confetti rained down from the rafters.
