Two weeks ago, the 21-year-old daughter of Columbus Sports Anchor Dom Tiberi was tragically killed in a traffic accident as she was driving on I-270 near Cemetery Road.

Still reeling with grief, the 10TV anchor returned to the air last week, extending his appreciation to everyone who has supported him and his wife during such a difficult time.

He gave a special shout out to Ohio State Buckeyes head coach Urban Meyer and the entire “Buckeye nation.”

Then, while waiting to report on the Ohio State win against Wisconsin on Saturday evening, Tiberi was recognized in one of the most heartwarming ways imaginable.

Player after player paused to embrace Tiberi as they made their way to the locker room after the game. The team's response is truly touching.
