During the live, nationally-televised broadcast of Ohio State University’s (OSU) win over rival Michigan Saturday, FOX Sports announcer Gus Johnson explained how one of the game’s stars lived to play football only because his mother had a change of heart about aborting him.
OSU running back J.K. Dobbins, who rushed for 211 yards and scored four touchdowns in his team’s 56-27 rout of Michigan, was almost aborted by his teenage mother, announcer Gus Johnson told viewers:
“J.K. Dobbins’ mom Maya became pregnant when she was 18 years old. She went to the doctor because she was thinking about aborting the baby, but changed her mind.
“That baby turned out to be that young man, J.K. Dobbins, who she calls her ‘miracle baby.’”
Wow! A @CFBONFOX football announcer just shared that the mother of star @OhioState player, @Jkdobbins22, walked out of an abortion facility & rejected abortion after becoming pregnant at 18.— Live Action (@LiveAction) December 1, 2019
"The baby turned out to be that young man... who she calls her 'miracle baby.'"
“All Glory to God,” Dobbins tweeted following the game, sharing a SportsCenter post announcing that he had become OSU’s number two all-time rushing leader.
