"I've had season tickets 
since 1953."
The gentlemen received an all-access tour of the training facility.
Dick and Robert got to hold one of the Championship rings.
Dick and Robert 
enjoyed sharing 
stories from “the 
good old days” under 
Coach Woody Hayes.
They were given honorary Buckeye stickers just like the 
players wear on their helmets.
Robert couldn’t believe how big the players shoes were!
They even got to “high-five” 
Archie’s Heisman trophy!
Both Robert and Dick shared their personal 
experience sitting through the infamous 
“Snow Bowl.”
The men got to watch the team practice. 
Not many people are allowed to do that!
Coach Meyer spent time talking with Robert 
and Dick, asking to hear their stories.

The coach wrote

remind them of 
this special day.
"This was the best day of my entire life. 
I got to meet Urban Meyer."
"It's been a 
long journey 
really, but a 
good one. I've 
enjoyed every 
bit of it."
