Ryan Shazier continues to make rounds in the world of sports.
The Steelers linebacker was honored at his alma mater on Saturday during the Ohio State football spring game.
Shazier, who played three seasons with the Buckeyes in 2011 -13 before being selected by the Steelers with the No. 15 overall pick in the 2014 NFL Draft, served as honorary captain for the showdown. He drove a golf cart into the midfield and stood briefly unaided while cheering for the crowd at Ohio Stadium.

Shazier, 25, is still recovering from a serious spinal injury sustained in a game against the Bengals on December 4 that required spinal stabilization surgery and left him in a wheelchair. Still, the injury did not stop the two-time Pro Bowl player from attending several sporting events, including Wednesday's Stanley Cup tiebreaker game between the Penguins and Flyers at PPG Paints Arena.
Although he will not play in 2018, Steelers General manager Kevin Colbert confirmed that there will be some sort of designation for Shazier so he can still remain part of the team next season.
