How Urban Meyer, Ohio State Football Helped A Student Overcome Her Anxiety

Korbyn Martin had dreamed of attending Ohio State since she was a child. By the end of her first semester as a Buckeye last fall, however, Martin was questioning whether she made the right choice.

A 4.0 student at Ayersville High School, Martin was struggling to keep up in her first chemistry class at Ohio State. Martin began to have doubts about herself – feelings that she was no longer smart enough to attend Ohio State – and her anxiety kicked in.

That all began to change, however, when Martin had the opportunity to meet the biggest celebrity on campus, a man who has battled anxiety himself: Ohio State football coach Urban Meyer.
