While the sports world has stopped due to the coronavirus pandemic, many of the athletes, coaches and executive within it have stepped up to lend a helping hand, in their own ways.

Some have written checks and others have donated their time. However, one of the most popular ways athletes are contributing is by auctioning off some of their precious memorabilia form their playing days.

That is the path that former Ohio State, Buffalo Bills and Detroit Lions linebacker Chris Spielman is taking. He has decided to auction off his Big Ten Title ring he won while at Ohio State in 1986.

While it might not seem like a huge prize to some, it will be to one lucky Ohio State fan that purchases it. And it will all go to an amazing cause, making everyone a winner here.

Add this to the long list of athletes and people from the sports world using their platform and accomplishments for the greater good in a time when the world really needs people to step up in any way imaginable.
