Buckeye Wrestling Donor Club

Give to Ohio State Wrestling


Dear Friends of Ohio State Wrestling:

The 2016-17 wrestling season was one of Ohio State's finest in history. We hope you were proud in the manner our student-athletes conducted themselves on and off the mats. We had 5 Academic All-Americans and had a team GPA of over 3.1. Our NCAA runner-up finish and second Big Ten title in the past three years were just a few of the team highlights. Winning four of the ten weight classes in the Big Ten's (Nate Tomasello-125, Bo Jordan-174, Kollin Moore-197, Kyle Snyder- HWT) was a school record as was the number of points we scored at the NCAA's. Kyle Snyder won his second NCAA title and five others earned All-American honors. Six All-Americans is a school record as well (Nate Tomasello-3rd, Micah Jordan-4th, Bo Jordan-2nd, Myles Martin-5th, Kollin Moore-3rd, Kyle Snyder- 1st).

We are excited for what the future holds for the 2017-18 Wrestling Buckeyes. This team has seven returning All-Americans all in the top 4, along with some great talent at the additional three weights. We have great senior leadership in Nate Tomasello, Bo Jordan and Kyle Snyder. They are chasing history as the first three athletes to become four-time All-Americans in the same season. Our home schedule should provide some great action and the NCAA's will be held in Cleveland, OHIO.

We hope you would consider supporting us again this season. Your donation will go to help pay for one of the many different expenses that our program has to cover each year. Some of these expenses include:

  • Summer school expenses for our athletes
  • Team leadership programs
  • Nutritional needs and team meals
  • National Team travel expenses
  • Repair for equipment and current facility expenses
  • Team awards and end of year banquet expenses

Last season our goal was to raise $250,000 to cover the above costs along with many others that come up throughout the season. Thanks to your donations we were able to raise $200,000. We are asking all of our supporters to please consider giving 25% above what you gave last season to cover the $250,000 needed to be the best program in the nation. Donors who give $100 or more to our program will receive the opportunity to purchase NCAA tickets in our fan section at the 2018 NCAA National Championships.

You will be proud of the Buckeye wrestling team and we hope you decide to play a role in the great future ahead by joining our donor club. Thank you for your support. We win with people, we win with you.
