When Ohio State opens for camp on August 5th, the Buckeyes will have a familiar face competing for playing time at the Star OLB/SS position, in Tyler Moeller.â†µ
Last July, Tyler Moeller and his family were vacationing in Florida, when Moeller was attacked in bar. Moeller suffered a fractured skull and a serious brain injury that kept him out for the entire ’09 season.â†µ
Previously Moeller was allowed to participate in light agility drills. Today he was cleared by team Doctors for full physical contact and Moeller is looking forward to reminding Ohio State fans of what they missed in ’09.â†µ
“I’ll be anxious a little bit that I am going to be fine, but it’s not something I’m thinking about. I’m anxious to get it all (behind) me and be back where I was. I haven’t played in so long, I want to show everyone what I can do.”â†µ
Moeller will be a 5th year Junior and will petition the NCAA for a hardship 6th year after this season.â†µ
Kids like Tyler Moeller make rooting for Ohio State such a easy, wonderful chore on Saturdays.
