The moment that a young person is named a captain of a sports team is a special moment that they’ll never forget.

For parents, that moment is extra special too…especially if your son is at a place like Ohio State.

The Buckeyes allowed cameras to capture the moment that defensive line coach Larry Johnson called Tracy Sprinkle, the mother of Ohio State defensive lineman Tracy Sprinkle (yes, same name), to inform her that her son had just been named a captain of the 2017 Buckeye squad.

The pure joy and pride you can hear coming from her end of the phone is something that is going to give everyone chills.

Take a look.
