This is one of the more unusual stories I’ve heard lately. Josh Springer is a cheerleader at Ohio State, but he also played other sports in high school. Springer apparently decided to try out for the football team and made the squad, even though he’s a junior. Ordinarily you wouldn’t think a cheerleader could cross over into football, considering how tough the game is (especially at a monster program like Ohio State). But this Springer guy looks pretty stacked, and from what Busted Coverage said, he runs like a 4.4 40 or so. I guess this is like the new trend in the Big 10, considering what Indiana did allowing their team manager to play in a few basketball games this year.
I have no idea if Springer will ever play or see any action, but this is still a cool story for him. I can’t even imagine what they hazing will be like when he steps into that locker room, yikes. And this certainly will fuel some barbs by the rest of the conference. Are you getting your jokes prepared, Michigan?
