Jason Hug might be a cadet at West Point, but after Ohio State’s 38-7 win over Army on Saturday in the first meeting between the schools, he was like a lot of the other fans milling on the Ohio Stadium field.

The Bryan, Ohio, native wanted a selfie with Urban Meyer.

He wound up getting much more than that. Meyer invited to stand between the coach and his wife Shelley during the post-game singing of Carmen Ohio in front of the OSU band.

“Sir, it was a spur of the moment thing,” Hug told The Dispatch Sunday morning. “I wanted to get a picture with him after the game. After approaching him initially, he continued to ask me about West Point and my life there.”

That’s how they ended up next to each other first as the cadets and others sang the U.S. Military Academy’s school song.

“Then after the West Point alma mater he said ‘Come sing Carmen Ohio with me’, “ Hug said.

Hug, 21, a senior life science major at West Point but lifelong Ohio State fan, jumped at the chance to join Meyer in the tradition started by coach Jim Tressel in 2001.

“I had no connection to him prior to this,” Hug said. “It was surreal.

“Coach Meyer is a class act. I am extremely grateful.”
