Former Ohio State football quarterback Joe Burrow is a national champion, and no one is happier for him than Buckeye fans.
The LSU Tigers won the national championship 42-25 over the Clemson Tigers on Monday as former Ohio State football quarterback Joe Burrow capped off a magical season with a ring.
Burrow made college football history on Monday, throwing for 463 yards and five touchdowns in the national championship, helping his LSU Tigers get the win. Overall, he ultimately threw for 5,671 yards, 60 touchdowns, and only six interceptions on the season as many are calling him the best college football quarterback to ever play.
Burrow saw limited action at Ohio State, playing in five games his redshirt freshman season and in five games his sophomore year as well. With the Buckeyes going to Dwayne Haskins and then to Justin Fields – which clearly was not a bad choice – Burrow made the move to LSU which was also the right choice for him, winning a Heisman Trophy, a national championship, and breaking records in the process.
Many Buckeye fans and former players took to Twitter to support Burrow after the win on Monday.
“Extremely happy for Joe. Well deserved and EARNED!”
“Value the person who lost it all and got it back. #Geauxtigers #O-H love you bro [Joe Burrow] and congratulations you did that!”
Burrow is a Buckeye through and through. He balled out at high school in Ohio, he earned a degree at Ohio State, he thanked Ohio State in his Heisman Trophy acceptance speech, and he raised awareness for the less fortunate in Southeast Ohio.
This season has been magical, and he has won over the hearts of almost everyone in America, but he has always had the hearts of many Ohioans. Now he is onto the NFL where he will probably make his return to the Buckeye state.
