Jacob Jarvis, a teen stricken with Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy, spent the latter half of 2014 as an honorary captain of the National Champion Ohio State Buckeyes, even walking out to the field with the Buckeyes for the coin-toss prior to OSU’s game against Cincinnati. After celebrating the National Championship on the field at AT&T Stadium with the team and watching himself as the subject of an ESPN segment on TV, Jarvis returned home with a renewed sense of self. We visited with Jacob and his family to see just how he has changed following this past season and, as it turns out, a change in Jacob’s attitude has manifested itself into another great opportunity for the youngster.
