Ohio Will Wear Decals Supporting Victims of Abuse

Come September 1st at Beaver Stadium, the Nittany Lions won’t be the only team supporting victims of child abuse.

According to a Yahoo! Sports report, Ohio will wear unique decals on their helmets, similar to the patches that Penn State plans to adorn throughout the season. The symbol of awareness is meant “to join the Penn State team in showing support for child abuse victims,” Ohio athletic director Jim Schnaus told Yahoo! Sports.

The NCAA noted that so far, Ohio is only team to reach out to Penn State and request to wear special patches or decals during games against the Nittany Lions this year. One would hope that a few other teams join Penn State in raising awareness for the widespread issue of child abuse.

As you may recall, Nebraska assistant coach Ron Brown led an inspiring prayer before the Senior Day game last November.
