Jody Victor: Former Buckeyes Speak

Jody Victor: A number of experts spoke out in an evening program presented by OSU's athletics compliance department to members of the Buckeye football squad last week.

The panel included Scottie Graham, a Buckeye running back from 1988-91 and now on staff with the National Football League Players Association; Anthony Gonzalez, an Ohio State wide receiver from 2004-06 who now plays for the Indianapolis Colts; Roy Hall, a Buckeye receiver from 2003-06 now with the Indianapolis Colts; and Will Allen, an OSU corner from 2000-03 who plays for the Miami Dolphins.

The group touched on a variety of pertinent topics, including the responsibility of being an Ohio State student-athlete, ways to succeed in the classroom and in life, avoiding substance abuse and gambling, and financial and other awareness issues when planning a professional sports career.

Go Bucks!
