In a video posted to Urban Meyer’s Twitter, North Ridgeville’s Demario McCall and Lorain’s Rashod Berry lost their black stripes during the team’s final day of training camp. Awesome way to end fall camp! Demario and Rashod welcome to the Bucks! pic.twitter.com/I4LEzOKILt — Urban Meyer (@OSUCoachMeyer) August 20, 2016 Losing the black stripes is a ritual, marking the transition from freshman to to upperclassman. Each freshman sports a black strip of tape on their helmet. The rite of passage of removing the tape marks his transition to a full member of The Ohio State University football team. McCall is a four-star running back out of North Ridgeville. Berry is a three-star defensive end out of Lorain.
