Ohio State recognizes outstanding Student-Athletes at Scholar-Athlete dinner



2019 Ohio State Scholar-Athletes

COLUMBUS, Ohio — The Ohio State Department of Athletics held the 52nd-annual Scholar-Athlete Dinner Wednesday in the Archie M. Griffin Ballroom at the Ohio Union to honor its student-athletes for their academic and athletic accomplishments. At the event, 674 Ohio State Scholar-Athletes were recognized and a number of senior awards were given out.


The finalists for the Big Ten Medal of Honor, which is awarded to one male and one female student from the graduating class of each member institution who has demonstrated excellence on and off the field throughout their college career, were revealed at the dinner. The highest honor a student competing in conference athletics can achieve in the Big Ten, the award was established in 1915 and was the first award in intercollegiate athletics to demonstrate support for the educational emphasis placed on athletics. During the past century, the Big Ten Medal of Honor has been awarded to more than 1,300 honorees. These individuals have translated their campus experience into success in all walks of life.


The Ohio State Big Ten Medal of Honor finalists for 2019 on the women’s side are Lauren Boyle (ice hockey), Alyssa Hoying (synchronized swimming), Devon Kerr (soccer), Lilli Piper (softball) and Karrington Winters (track). For the men, the finalists are Marc-Antoine Blais Belanger (fencing), Cole Gorski (track), Mason Jobst (hockey), Martin Joyce (tennis) and Sanil Thomas (volleyball).


Four Buckeye sports programs were recognized for their performances in the classroom.


Women’s swimming and diving was recognized for having the highest grade-point average among teams with large rosters, while the women’s volleyball team received the honor among the teams with small rosters. Synchronized swimming was honored for having the most improved team GPA among the teams with large rosters and the women’s basketball team was honored as most improved GPA for the teams with small rosters.


Fencer Gabriella Leccese was the recipient of both the Leann Grimes-Davidge Award and the John Dana Cole Award. The Leann Grimes-Davidge Award, which is a tribute to Grimes-Davidge’s contributions to athletics at Ohio State, is given annually to a female athlete who reflects Grimes-Davidge’s outstanding qualities of athletic performance, scholarship, character, campus or community involvement and leadership. A member of the Ohio State women’s tennis team, Grimes-Davidge won four state and Big Ten titles. She graduated from Ohio State summa cum laude and received her master’s degree from Miami University where she served as the head women’s tennis coach. The John Dana Cole Award, established in 1966 by a gift through the Development Fund from John D. Cole, provides a one-time stipend for post-graduate studies at Ohio State. The recipient of the scholarship is a student-athlete who shows the promise of success in his/her chosen field and has demonstrated academic achievement (3.00 GPA minimum).


The Corwin A. Fergus Memorial Award was given to Sasha Larocque of the men’s hockey team, men’s gymnast David Szarvas, wrestler Joseph McKenna and synchronized swimmer Alyssa Hoying. Fergus scholars are male or female student-athletes who have excelled in athletics, achieved academically (3.00 GPA minimum), demonstrated positive qualities of character and citizenship and shown potential for success in a graduate or professional program. Established in 1967, the award is given in memory of Corwin A. Fergus, a member of the Ohio State football team (1912-14), a graduate of the Ohio State School of Law and later a successful businessman. The award reflects his strong commitment to the pursuit of academic and athletic excellence and his positive contributions to society. The $5,000 postgraduate scholarships, which each are renewable for up to three years, can be utilized for graduate study or professional programs at Ohio State.


Szarvas also was the recipient of the Pierce Phoenix Award, which is given to a student-athlete who has excelled in academics, athletics and personal growth attained through perseverance and hard work. The award is to be used to attend graduate or professional school at Ohio State, with preference given to someone who intends to enroll in the Fisher College of Business.


In addition, Szarvas joined synchronized swimmer Alyssa Hoying as the Varsity O Scholarship Award winners. The Varsity O award provides each scholar-athlete selected (one male/one female) with a one-time stipend of $4,000 for postgraduate studies at Ohio State. The ideal candidate maintained a 3.0 GPA or higher during undergraduate studies, earned a varsity letter and performed community service.


Rower Madison Sheahan and Jacyn Reeves of the women’s ice hockey team both received the M/I Homes Foundation Award, which has been awarded annually since 1976. The award was one of the first designed specifically to recognize and promote women’s achievements in intercollegiate athletics at Ohio State. It provides an outstanding female scholar-athlete $5,000 for postgraduate studies at Ohio State. The award is based on demonstrated athletic and academic success as well as community contributions through involvement in civic or university organizations.


Five Buckeyes were selected for the Woody and Anne Hayes Award – Bailey Urbach from the rifle team, synchronized swimmer Rachel Warren, Hannah Gantt of the women’s lacrosse team and two members of the men’s hockey team, Brendon Kearney and John Wiitala. The award, established in 1979, provides one or more varsity athletes with financial assistance for postgraduate studies. The recipients of this scholarship are student-athletes who have demonstrated academic achievement (3.00 GPA minimum) and leadership qualities.


Ohio State football team has 47 players honored as Scholar-Athletes



Academic All-American Jordan Fuller, 4-time honoree Kevin Woidke lead academic achievers


COLUMBUS, Ohio – First-team Academic All-American Jordan Fuller, a marketing major from Old Tappan, N.J., and Kevin Woidke, a two-year letterman from Cleveland whose on field efforts have recently earned him a scholarship, lead nearly half a roster of Ohio State football Buckeyes – 47 in all – who have earned OSU Scholar-Athlete honors for the 2018-19 academic calendar.


A total of 674 student-athletes – those with 3.00 or better grade point averages for the year – were honored in the Archie M. Griffin Ballroom at the Ohio Union this evening during the department’s 52nd annual scholar-athlete banquet.


Fuller, who carries a 3.81 overall grade point average and is majoring in marketing, is an OSU Scholar-Athlete for a third time. His impressive academic credentials include being named a Big Ten Conference Distinguished Scholar, Academic all-Big Ten (twice) and second-team Academic All-American in 2017 when he was a sophomore.


He tied for the team lead in tackles last season with 81 and he was second to Jerome Baker in 2017. Fuller enters his senior season with the Buckeyes with a team-high 162 career tackles.


Woidke earns the distinction of being the only football player this spring who is a four-time OSU Scholar-Athlete. He has played in every game the past two seasons when the Buckeyes captured back-to-back Big Ten titles and won Cotton and Rose bowl games.


Three-time scholar-athlete honorees include: Drue Chrisman, Gavin Cupp, Brock Davin, Luke Farrell, Jake Hausmann, Dre’mont Jones, Bryan Kristan, Liam McCullough and C.J. Saunders.


Jones, a first-team All-American this past season who has graduated with his degree in sociology, led a corps of 21 players who were also named to the Academic All-Big Ten team last fall.
