09/03/2009 - For five years Andre Amos and Austin Spitler have labored on the Ohio State football team, one perpetually injured and the other stuck behind a perpetual All-American. With the No. 6 Buckeyes poised to open their season against Navy on Saturday, both find themselves in an unfamiliar place???the spotlight. "Patience is not necessarily a virtue of young people," coach Jim Tressel said Thursday. Except for maybe Amos and Spitler. Asked during camp if he were going to start the first game, Amos said all the right things about being in a battle with Devon Torrence at cornerback. The reporter followed up by asking why he smiled as he answered. I'm just a happy guy," Amos said. No wonder. He has played just 67 total minutes in his four previous years on campus because of a series of injuries. Now he's getting the call to start opposite Chimdi Chekwa against the Midshipmen, who have rushed for more yards than any other major college team a record four years in a row. Amos looks forward to what amounts to his final shot at college football. "Man, this means everything. That's all I can say," he said. "I played early and I've had two down seasons and now it's time to get back on track." Their teammates have been pulling for them all along. They've noticed the hours of hard work, and in Amos' case the days and weeks spent rehabbing injuries. "I'm so happy that ???Dre's doing well this year," safety Anderson Russell said. "I feel sympathy with him because we both had (torn) ACLs. Then last year he was kind of getting back in the flow of things and was thinking he was going to get some playing time and he had another injury. I'm just glad that he's healthy right now and everything's working out for him." After a redshirt year, Amos had a promising freshman season in 2006 when he played in all 12 games. But he underwent knee surgery the next spring and saw only limited time the following fall. - AP Sports
