COLUMBUS (WCMH) — Ohio State alumni band member Anthony Violi, of Steubenville, was the oldest person marching at Ohio State University on Saturday.
The 99-year-old did not get to march last year because of an injury, but attended anyway. This year, the trumpet player was back on the field at The Shoe.
Violi joined more than 800 of his fellow TBDBITL alumni before the Buckeyes played UNLV.
“At my age, I never thought I could do it, but I fought it and I completed it, fantastic! And I intend to come back next year,” he told NBC4.
Next year, he says, he will get to dot the “i” in Script Ohio.
