Ohio State Overview: Damon Webb capped his fine four-year career by graduating with his degree in sport industry, starting every game for the Buckeyes the last two seasons – 27 consecutive – and being named the defensive Most Valuable Player in the 2017 Cotton Bowl. In that 24-7 win over USC in the Cotton Bowl, Webb set up one Ohio State touchdown with a fumble recovery and return and he scored a touchdown on a 23-yard interception return. He clearly was a leader in the secondary as a senior as the only returning starter from 2016, and he played like it. He was third on the team in total tackles with 61 and he led the team with five interceptions, a total that ranked second in the Big Ten Conference. He set his career best with nine tackles in back-to-back games against Oklahoma and Army. And for his career he played in 42 games and had 131 tackles, six interceptions and 13 passes defended. He played in eight games in 2014 as a true freshman for the College Football Playoff national champions, and he also was a part of five other championships: two Big Ten championships (2014 and 2017), Sugar Bowl (a 2014 win over Alabama), Fiesta Bowl (2015 win over Notre Dame) and the 2017 Cotton Bowl. Webb played cornerback for two seasons before moving to safety in 2016. He is majoring in sport industry.
