Saturday afternoon, OSU got it right. They showed us allthat it&rsquo;s not always about the X&rsquo;s and O&rsquo;s, or the final score. At halftime ofthe Bedlam basketball game, the school dedicated a scholarship to a young fanthat passed away last season. </p>Caleb Spady died of a brain tumor last year. He was an avidbaseball fan and loved the Cowboys. His short time on earth was filled withboth the joy of a game, and the pain of his medical condition. From what I&rsquo;veread, he didn&rsquo;t let his cancer get him down. He vowed to beat it, and playcollege baseball for his favorite team.</p>That dream never was realized but, in a way, it still cametrue. He will be on the field in spirit every year until the end of time. He wont physically be the one wearing spikes and a glove, but oneplayer each season will earn a spot on the team because of his scholarship. </p>Orange Power, indeed.</p>Hats off to the Cowboys; The team Caleb cheered so loudly for. </p>
