2001 Media Guide: Andy Groom is a former walk-on who is now the starting holder for all placements … tried out for the team in the fall of 1998 as a true freshman and was kept as a combination punter-kicker … began holding last year and earned his first letter … former quarterback with sure hands … has demonstrated the ability to stay cool under fire and is a valuable member of the special teams … picked up 14 yards on a fake field goal against Iowa, narrowly missing a touchdown on the play … had a punt blocked later in the same game, but ran the ball down and returned it 11 yards on a very athletic play.

2000 Season: Saw action in all 12 games.

1999 Media Guide: Andy Groom walked-on to the team last fall and has been working out as a punter and placekicker.

Personal: An all-state kicker in high school at Bishop Hartley. Walked-on to the program because “I always wanted to be a Buckeye.” The son of Carol and Joseph Groom. A sister, Tricia, is an Ohio State graduate and a brother, Joseph, is currently attending Ohio State. Born Sep. 10, 1979.
