Student Race Competition


So ... do you think you are a fast runner? Like, really fast? If you are, here is your chance to race against Ohio State’s fastest player – Dontre Wilson, Devin Smith, etc. – at halftime of this year’s spring game!

Coach Meyer likes to have fun with the “student appreciation” practice each year (this year’s student appreciation practice will be Saturday, April 5th at 11am). Two years ago the students were on the field encircling our field goal team while it was kicking field goals. Last year some students had the chance to kick field goals. And this year we want to find out who is the fastest student on campus.

If you think you are fast, here are the details:

  1. Report to the Biggs Lobby of the Woody Hayes Athletic Center next Wednesday, March 26, at 5 p.m. for an informational session and preliminary rounds of testing.
  2. The fastest individuals who emerge from this session will compete in a series of semifinal races during our student appreciation practice on April. 5.
  3. The semifinals winner will then have a date one week later to race the fastest Ohio State Buckeye at halftime of the spring game.

This competition is only for current Ohio State students with a valid OSU ID and proof of enrollment. Spread the word and we hope to see you next Wednesday at the Woody Hayes Athletic Center! GO BUCKS!
