Jackie Ruggles spoke out on behalf of her son Noah Tuesday morning.

Noah Ruggles, Ohio State’s kicker, missed a 50-yard field goal attempt wide left to secure Georgia’s spot in the national championship against TCU with a 42-41 win against the Buckeyes.

“Thank you Buckeye Nation for the overwhelming support,” she wrote on Twitter Tuesday morning. “I know the loss breaks every Buckeye heart, and I appreciate the grace many of you have shown. Noah takes full responsibility for the miss. He will be forever grateful to his coaches and teammates who, week after week, put him in a position to be successful. For every person who works so hard for this team, in whatever role you play, thank you! Noah will speak to how Ryan Day and Parker Fleming changed his life. I am so thankful he was led by great coaches who are also great men.

“When my dad was at UPMC in Pittsburgh which was the last week of his life here, he watched film of Noah making (a) 50+ kick in his (junior) year of high school. He said it would be his dream to see him kick at Ohio State. I thank God my dad’s dream came true. It was been an amazing two years. Buckeye Forever.”

Transferring to Ohio State after three seasons at North Carolina, Noah Ruggles made 37 of his 41 field goal attempts in two seasons with the Buckeyes, including 17 of his 20 attempts in 2022.

In 2021, Ruggles was No. 1 in the country among kickers averaging 10.3 points per game and was fourth among all players in scoring average. He set an Ohio State record with 134 points scored.
