1988 Media Guide: Figures to start at fullback this fall, replacing three-year regular George Cooper … has defied the odds, first by making the team as a walk-on, then by winning a scholarship and now by starting … an excellent blocker and a hard, powerful runner who is difficult to bring down because of his explosiveness and low running style … has seen only spot action the past three years, but has always performed well when called upon … carried the ball eight times for 61 yards last year, an average of 7.6 yards per carry … gained 39 yards on five carries at Illinois, his top game as a collegian … played in eight games as a freshman, but did not carry the ball … thrust into action the second game of his freshman year when Cooper went down with a knee injury.

High School: A standout fullback and linebacker at Beechcroft, but was considered too small to play major college football … walked on at OSU and was converted to scholarship as a freshman.

Personal: Making the Ohio State team fulfilled a lifelong dream. “I have wanted to play at Ohio State since I was about five years old,” he says.
