2003 Media Guide: Mike Kne is a solid reserve at tackle behind Shane Olivea on the right side … played an important role for the offense last year as the extra tackle when the Buckeyes went to their “jumbo” look … has size and speed and seems to respond well to pressure … originally enrolled at Fordham and was a starter there as a freshman (he led the team in number of plays) … transferred to Ohio State in 2001 because he dreamed of someday playing in the Rose Bowl, but is more than happy that his first bowl appearance was in the Fiesta Bowl … made the team as a walk-on and sat out the 2001 season … was pressed into action last year because of a lack of depth and played surprisingly well.
2002 Season: Earned his first letter … appeared in 11 games for a total of 36 minutes … 10 minutes against San Jose State was his longest stint.
High School: Played defense for three years before switching to offensive tackle as a senior … helped lead St. Ignatius to the Division I state title as a senior.
Personal: Parents are Tom and Joan Kne … an older brother, Tom, played football at Baldwin Wallace and earned honorable mention All-America recognition … enjoys walleye fishing and playing golf as ways of relaxing.
