The Ohio State Buckeyes football team had a very special visitor at Saturday's spring practice.

It's not everyday you get to meet a man who is truly a hero, but today the Buckeyes were lucky enough to have that opportunity. And judging by linebacker Joshua Perry's reaction they truly appreciated it.

Head coach Urban Meyer watched Marcus speak while standing by his son, Nate.

Although he is from Texas, Marcus is welcome in Buckeye Nation anytime.
