Sophomore Forward
Major: Biology

Peanut Johnson, a sophomore on the Ohio State field hockey team from Dayton, Ohio, is leading the team with a season-high 17 points on eight goals and one assist through 12 contests in 2013. The speedy OSU forward, who collected 15 points last year as a freshman, has boasted two hat tricks this year in a win over Missouri State and a loss to nationally-ranked Louisville. Johnson will look to help the Buckeye program advance in postseason play next month as the squad hosts the 2013 Big Ten Tournament Nov. 7-10 at Buckeye Varsity Field in Columbus.

    Why did you choose to major in biology? I chose to major in biology in hopes of pursuing a medical career.
