2004 Media Guide: Teams with Branden Joe to give the Buckeyes a pair of dependable fullbacks who excel in all phases of the game … stepped in as a starter last year when Joe was hurt and held down the fort until Joe’s return … played in the first eight games and started against North Carolina State … suffered a hamstring injury at Indiana in week eight and missed the last five games of the season … is back at full strength and was very productive in spring practice.
2003 Season: First carry of the year was a 5-yard gain against North Carolina State … had two carries for five yards at Wisconsin … had four receptions for 26 yards … earned his second varsity letter.
2003 Media Guide: Brandon Schnittker is again expected to share time with Branden Joe at the fullback spot … did so last year and appeared in all 14 games for a total of 90 minutes … made his first collegiate start against Penn State … was used primarily as a blocker last year, but has the size and power to be an effective inside runner … lone carry of the year was a 1-yard run against Kent State … his first collegiate catch was certainly a memorable one – a 15-yard grab in the fourth-quarter of the Michigan game that kept the Buckeyes’ game-winning drive alive … made steady progress last year and should have a good year in 2003 now that he has 14 games under his belt.
2002 Season: Received his first varsity letter … longest stints were 12 minutes against Washington State and Cincinnati … was the starter against Penn State when the Buckeyes opened the game in a one-back set.
2002 Media Guide: Brandon Schnittker is a skilled young fullback prospect … heads into the fall listed behind Branden Joe … both players figure to see a lot of action … good runner and blocker … had a productive spring … coaches would like to see him become even more physical.
2001 Season: Redshirted.
High School: Division IV Associated Press co-Defensive Player of the Year … First-Team All-Ohio at linebacker … Defensive player of the year in the district … 105 tackles, 13 tackles-for-loss, three sacks, four forced fumbles, three fumble recoveries and five interceptions (two for touchdowns) as a senior … as a fullback, rushed for 900 yards and averaged 9.2 yards per carry … National Football Foundation Scholar-Athlete … wrestled, played baseball and competed on the track and field team … National Honor Society member.
Personal: Born May 24, 1983 … son of Marilyn Hamann and Paul Schnittker … two brothers, Ryan and Michael … cousins Max Schnittker (1945-46) and Dick Shnittker (1949) played football at Ohio State … Dick also was a basketball All-American and played in the NBA with the Minnesota Lakers … would like to be a teacher when his playing career is finished … two of his favorite memories are winning the state high school championship at Perkins and the national championship with the Buckeyes.
