    Drawing on experiences from a successful career in professional football and business, Buckeye legend Eddie George is giving back and preparing the next generation of sports leaders — as a teacher.

    If there is one lesson I learned during my time at Ohio State, it’s that the concept of “paying forward” is as powerful as the man who spent his lifetime embracing the mantra.

    That belief is what brought me back to Ohio State this year — not as a coach, administrator or fundraiser, but as a teacher. Yes, 20 years after last stepping foot inside an Ohio State classroom, I was back leading a management course with Dr. David Greenberger, associate dean for staff, human resources and administration and a professor of management and human resources at Fisher College of Business.

    Training with the pros
    My goal for the course — Leveraging Athletics for Business and Personal Success — was to provide a 360-degree perspective on the life cycle of professional sports, topics that included contract law and the role of agents, financial advisors and business managers.

    For perspective on many of these crucial subjects, we proudly welcomed to campus a number of prominent sports figures, including Fred Whitfield, president and chief operating officer of the Charlotte Hornets; super-agent Leigh Steinberg; Troy Vincent, executive vice president of football operations for the NFL; and Zac Minor, a trained actor whose skit-based “Life Skills” program has become a critical part of player development in the NFL, NBA, MLB and NHL.

    The excitement and interest from the students were overwhelming. Seeing them so actively engaged with the curriculum and in tune with these leaders in sports was inspiring and humbling. I never thought I’d be teaching anything. Looking back, I guess I was one of those students who struggled to stay awake in class. So now, having been on the other side of the classroom, I applaud and commend the professors at Ohio State because it’s a hard job to do.

    Regardless of all the hard work that went into creating the course and teaching it, I can honestly say it was worth every minute. It was gratifying, liberating and therapeutic. Every week I gave a part of myself, and in return I saw the light bulb switched on for all the future athletes, agents, business managers and financial advisors in that classroom.

    Not sure how many people are aware of just how successful Eddie has been in the business world. He's leveraged his landscape architecture degree from tOSU to build probably the premier LA consulting firm in Ohio. And Eddie George's Grill 27 just announced a new location somewhere in the Columbus 'burbs. Hard to survive in the tough restaurant business, but Eddie seems to be thriving.

    Very impressive stuff, and documents what a good idea it is for Buckeye athletes to listen closely whenever Eddie speaks.

    Ran into Eddie at a bar in Charlottesville recently. Talked to him for about 20 minutes about everything except football - business, acting, education, etc. He is an incredibly nice guy and a great example of someone that has found success on and off the field.

    Eddie George's football career has long been complete, but the legendary Ohio State running back and 1995 Heisman Trophy winner is full bore into his next career — acting.

    George is set to make his debut as Billy Flynn in the musical Chicago Monday on Broadway, so the Buckeye great swung by Good Morning America Friday morning to rub elbows with Lara Spencer and fans.

    It's #Heisman trophy winner @EddieGeorge2727 (and former @OhioStAthletics Buckeye) here at @GMA this AM!
    8:10 AM - 8 Jan 2016

    Curtains open on George's Broadway debut at the Ambassador Theatre in New York City at 8 p.m., so if you're in the Big Apple and would rather get some #culture instead of watching Alabama and Clemson battle for the College Football Playoff National Championship, here's your chance.

    It's hard to believe that it has been 20 years since Eddie won the Heisman....needless to say:
