Ryan Shazier Coming on Fast for Ohio State
Mike Carter-US PRESSWIRE

Ryan Shazier was playing for more than just himself and his current teammates last weekend at Penn State. The Ohio State linebacker switched his jersey number to 48 to honor Gary Curtis, his friend and the former manager for Shazier's Plantation (Fla.) High School football team. Curtis, who was bound to a wheelchair but always wore his No. 48 jersey to Plantation games, suffered from muscular dystrophy and died in the spring.
