The football world continues to pay tribute to the life of former Ohio State Buckeye and New Orleans Saints player Will Smith, who was the victim of a gun shooting in New Orleans earlier this week. Ohio State will recognize the former Buckeye with a memorial sticker on their football helmets during this weekend’s spring football game in Columbus.
A first look of the memorial sticker, featured Smith’s initials and a buckeye, was shared on Twitter by Ohio State director of athletics Gene Smith.
Smith was a three-year starter at Ohio State and a part of the 2002 national championship team. He was also a part of the Saints’ Super Bowl championship team in 2006.
Ohio State’s spring game (which Urban Meyer says he wants 100,000 fans to attend) is scheduled for Saturday, April 16 at 1:30 p.m. eastern. The game will air on Big Ten Network.
