COLUMBUS, Ohio - The Ohio State football Buckeyes spent their final day of the university's Maymester academic period paying forward as students and helping their younger peers at the Graham Expeditionary Middle School to "Play it Forward" by building, renovating and constructing a new playground on the grounds of the oldest middle school in the nation.

Three teams of Buckeyes - approximately 85 players in all - worked in shifts throughout the day to clean up the grounds, landscape, paint parking spaces, construct a garden, and repaint buildings and basketball backboards as part of a "Play it Forward" partnership among the Ohio State Office of Student Life, the football program, Lowe's and local schools in Columbus.
