Ohio State coach Urban Meyer was one of the coaches donning the patch on his sleeve, and it had added significance for his staff and the defending national champs.
Jacob Jarvis, the young Ohio State fan who followed the team on its national championship run last season, suffers from the disease, the most common fatal genetic disorder diagnosed during childhood.
Jarvis attended No. 1 Ohio State's win over Western Michigan on Saturday afternoon, and the team presented him with a $10,000 check on behalf of DMD in the victorious locker room. Meyer tweeted a picture of the scene above.
Last year, ?BTN Journey: Big Ten Football 2014? spotlighted the bond between Jarvis and the Buckeyes.
