Jacob Jarvis shares about his battle against Duchenne's Muscular Dystrophy


17-year-old Jacob Jarvis appeared on Good Day Columbus to share about his battle against Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy Friday.

Jarvis has been battling the disease for 14 years. He has made friends with Urban Meyer and other fellow Buckeyes including current Denver Broncos TE Jeff Heuerman.

Jarvis said he met Meyer in July of 2013. Since then Ohio State has donated $10,000 each year to Coach to Cure MD.

Coach to Cure is when coaches where a patch on their sleeve to promote Duchenne awareness.

On Friday's show, Jarvis shared about his love of the Buckeyes and how he received Heuerman's first NFL game-worn jersey. He also showed off some one of a kind shoes from Chelsea McGhee. She designs custom shoes for any interest.

Jarvis shared that he wants to become a sports broadcaster someday. He said he's gunning for ESPN's Kirk Herbstreit's analyst job.

After the show, The Football Fever producer Stu Osborne invited him to come be a part of the show later this fall.
