Posted: Updated:

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio – This season the Ohio State football team embarks on their first season under Urban Meyer as post-season eligible.

The Mahoning Valley is well represented in Columbus.

Boardman's Corey Linsley and J.T. Moore along with freshman Billy Price are ready to make an impact this year.

At a United Way banquet here in the Valley Buckeye head coach Urban Meyer had nothing but praise for "The Boys from the Valley."

"Corey Linsley, I call him the apex of our offense. He's our starting center; wonderful kid. The other JT is going to play more this year. He's finally getting a role on our defensive side and Billy Price; we are really excited to have him here. I think he looks fantastic. He has already been anointed the leader of our freshman class. They arrived on campus about two weeks ago. So he looks great," Myer said.
