“Our staff was overwhelmed by the compassion and honest interest in our folks. When players actually sought them out and called them by name, so many of our staff were touched and impressed. Many times when you deal with individuals who put on something like this, they are not so kind and caring, and for many in our world do not try to understand the individuals, let alone show kindness. But the OSU players and members of Driven went out of their way to understand, include and participate with our folks. It was a great day for so many.”
