Writing for the OSU Admissions Blog has been a wonderful outlet for me to talk about an institution that I really care very deeply about. We do try to strike a delicate content balance for you the reader. As much as we would love to spend all of our time gushing about guys like Jacquizz and James Rodgers, we know that you come to the Blog for more than just football news. With that in mind, we are really selective what we post. There are more good stories about our student athletes off the field than we have space to share them in.
Today, I ran across a story from KOIN Channel 6 (the Portland CBS affiliate) that’s just too good to pass up. It’s about a young man named Isaiah Scott who happens to be a HUGE Beaver fan. He is also fighting Leukemia. Isaiah’s biggest wish was to meet his football hero, Jacquizz Rodgers.
Great stuff! Kudos to KOIN for the great story! There is a foundation set up for Isaiah at Wells Fargo. Contact your local branch for more information on how you can donate. We’ve all got Isaiah in our thoughts over the holidays. We can’t wait to see his application in a few years!
