When a youngster is dreaming of a football career, making it to the NFL is tops on the list, but getting into a hall of fame has to be icing on the cake, no matter what kind of recognition it is.
For former Ohio State offensive lineman Nick Mangold, that has become a reality because it was announced on Thursday that he’ll be inducted into the Jets’ ring of honor. Mangold will join D’Brickashaw Ferguson and Darrelle Revis as the other two that will be enshrined.
“This is a shock,” Mangold said when he was surprised with the news. “Thank you so much. This is awesome and amazing since it’s with two of my guys.”
Mangold had an eleven-year career in the NFL, all with the Jets. He made the Pro Bowl seven times and was named first-team All-Pro twice. Before the NFL, Mangold played under Jim Tressel at Ohio State from 2003-to 2005, being named an All-American his senior season before New York drafted him at No. 29 in the first round of the 2006 NFL draft.

Congrats to Mangold. It’s a well-deserved honor for one whale of a Buckeye ambassador.
