U.S. Air Force Captain Kyle Cassady shouldn't have any trouble finding Ohio Stadium, since his Grandfather won the Heisman Trophy there.

Capt. Cassady, the grandson of 1955 Heisman winner, Howard "Hopalong" Cassady, will have his own memory of Ohio Stadium this weekend. He'll be leading the flyover before the Buckeyes' kickoff against Nebraska.

Capt. Cassady went to high school in Upper Arlington, and is a 2014 graduate of the Air Force Academy.

"All the guys back home right now are doing a B2 exercise for practice, and we have some good commanders over there that heard about this, they know I'm a Buckeye at heart, so they let me escape the base and come and do this flyover," Captain Cassady

Capt. Cassady's day job is flying the sophisticated B-2 stealth bomber out of the Whiteman Air Force Base in Kansas City.

"It kind of brings everything together, my Air Force family and my Columbus family get to do everything this weekend," Capt. Cassady said.

The Buckeyes take on Nebraska on Saturday, November 3 at noon on FOX.
