NFL Training Camps begin with many Buckeyes on all rosters

 

 

 

 

An Entire Team of Buckeyes Set for NFL Training Camps

NFL training camp rosters feature 62 former Ohio State players

 

COLUMBUS, Ohio – Training camps for all 32 National Football League teams are now open or set to open around the league and the Ohio State football program is well-represented based on recent research of current NFL rosters. A review of official team rosters at NFL.com reveals an entire team of Buckeyes are in the league: 62 players in all.

 

It’s no secret that Ohio State has been developing NFL talent, including high-level, first-round talent, for the duration of its history. The program is tied-for-first, with USC, in first-round picks with 81, including the second-most first-round picks in the last decade with 15. Ohio State’s 62 draft picks between 2010-19 is also second-most among college football teams in the decade, a number that includes 49 draft picks the last seven years under the tutelage of former head coach Urban Meyer and his staffs.

 

And the bulk of Ohio State’s 62 current NFL players were coached at least one season by Meyer: 55, including 13 players off the 2018 Big Ten and Rose Bowl champion team that posted a 13-1 record.

 

28 NFL Teams Feature a Buckeye

An Ohio State program high six former Buckeyes are on the New Orleans Saints roster – CB Eli Apple, QB J.T. Barrett, SAF Vonn Bell, WR Ted Ginn Jr., CB Marshon Lattimore and WR Michael Thomas. The Dallas Cowboys (WR Noah Brown, RB Ezekiel Elliott, WR Devin Smith and RB Mike Weber), Cincinnati Bengals (DE Sam Hubbard, OG Michael Jordan, OC Billy Price and LB Chris Worley) and the Miami Dolphins (LB Jerome Baker, LB Raekwon McMillan, OT Isaiah Prince and DT Adolphus Washington) each carry four former Buckeyes on their respective rosters.

Donald Lutz running bases for Dragons

Dayton, Ohio—The Dayton Dragons today announced the next name on their list of “20 Greatest Dragons.” The player recognition is part of the organization’s 20th Season Celebration.  Players selected on the list of 20 are being announced in random order.

 

Next on the list of the 20 Greatest Dragons is:

 

Donald Lutz

 

Lutz was the big hitter on the Dragons team that notched the most victories in a season of any club in franchise history—the 2011 Dragons.  That season, the Dragons went 83-57 including a second half record of 48-22 with a roster that also featured Billy Hamilton and Tucker Barnhart.  Lutz’s 2011 year with the Dragons made him one of only two Dayton players ever to complete a season with a batting average of at least .300 while hitting at least 20 home runs (Austin Kearns is the other).  He is also the only player in Dragons history to hit for the cycle in a game (single, double, triple, and home run in the same game).

 

Lutz played in 63 games for the Reds and became the first player raised in Germany to reach the Major Leagues.  He completed his playing career in 2017 before becoming a coach in the Reds organization.  In 2018, he served as the bench coach with the Arizona League Reds in Goodyear and will return there in 2019.

 

Lutz joins the following players who have been previously announced as the 20 Greatest Dragons:   Austin Kearns, Zack Cozart, Justin Turner, Homer Bailey, Samone Peters, Devin Mesoraco, Didi Gregorius, Tucker Barnhart, Todd Frazier, Wily Mo Peña, Jesse Winker, Edwin Encarnacion, Johnny Cueto, Luis Bolivar, Jose Siri, and Jay Bruce.

 

The 20 Greatest Dragons were selected based on a media vote of Dragons television, newspaper, radio, and internet reporters.  Additionally, during the 2019 season, the Dragons will be conducting a fan vote featuring one player per position to announce their all-time greatest lineup.
