Watch Ohio State players line up to hug announcer whose daughter died

October 01, 2013|By Houston Mitchell

It's nice to see something warm and sentimental in the cynical world of sports.

Dom Tiberi has covered the Ohio State football team since the 1980s. On Sept. 17, his daughter Maria, who attended Ohio State, was killed in a car accident.

Last Saturday was Tiberi's first game back since his daughter's death.

The Buckeyes wore the initials "MT" on their helmets during their 31-24 victory over Wisconsin and after the game, they each greeted Tiberi with a hug as they headed to the locker room.

It's a wonderful sight to see, which you can witness in the video above.
