Ohio State football

In honor of the Buckeyes becoming national champions of the first-ever college football playoffs one week ago, I've dedicated a blog post to some never-before-posted game pictures I shot while I was at the Columbus Dispatch. I photographed my Alma mater, Kent State, early in the season (0-66, ouch), and later had a chance to hang out on the sidelines for Indiana to capture some always-plentiful crowd features. Enjoy!
