However, there was one photo, in particular, that stood out among the rest, for a number of reasons.

@USATsportsImage caught this incredible image of Ohio State fan Jacob Jarvis on the field at AT&T Stadium as confetti dropped from the rafters following the Buckeyes’ eighth national championship, and first since 2002.

Jarvis, 15, has Duchenne muscular dystrophy, the most common fatal genetic disorder diagnosed during childhood and primarily affects boys across all races and cultures.

“BTN Journey: Big Ten Football 2014″ spotlighted the friendship between Jarvis and Ohio State head coach Urban Meyer on a show late last year.
