1990 Media Guide: Has jumped back and forth between offense and defense since transferring to Ohio State from John Carroll in the fall of 1987 … now at quarterback after being shifted back to that position (from outside linebacker) in the spring … the latter move was necessary because of Greg Frey playing baseball in the spring and Jason Frank being slowed by a sore throwing arm … hard worker who was converted to scholarship last year … backup holder for placements … starting QB at John Carroll as a freshman, winning MVP honors.
1989: Reserve outside linebacker … played in all 12 games as a member of the specialty teams and had three tackles.
1989 Media Guide: Moved to outside backer in the spring and impressed the coaches with his quick grasp of the position … will be a solid backup once he gains experience.
1988: Backup quarterback until midway through the season when he was moved to safety … saw brief action in seven games, mostly with the specialty teams … had two tackles.
1988 Media Guide: While he did not play last year, he did practice in the fall and spring … was in the thick of the battle for the No. 2 quarterback spot in the spring until a foot injury caused him to miss the last week of practice and the spring game.
1987: Transfer year.
1986: Played at John Carroll.
HIGH SCHOOL: Strictly a defensive back until his senior year, when he also played quarterback … despite a 4-6 record as a senior and just one year of experience at his new position, he was named to the all-city team … also lettered two years in both wrestling and track.
PERSONAL: Hobbies are golf and water skiing … favorite football player is Joe Montana … his brother, Brian, is a wide receiver for the Buckeyes.
