Jake McCluskey

My name is Jake McCluskey. I am from Cincinnati where I went to Moeller for high school and played sports. My favorite sport was football and I played defensive end and won state my senior year. My fun fact is that my father and I have matching tattoos that represent our state championships our senior years.

My favorite buckeye story was when the football team was playing in the sugar bowl and my brothers roomate, Reid Fragel, was the tight end that year and he caught a pass for a huge gain. Reid Fragel is 6'8 310 pounds now and plays for the Cincinnati Bengals but before he reached the bengals he had to put in alot of hard work. It was the end of his junior year and he had made the decsion to move from tight end to offensive tackle, knowing that was the only way he could make it to the NFL.  He went from 275 to 310 in the off-season. His transaction from tight end to tackle was so impressive that Urban Meyer named an award after him for a player that switches opposite positions, starts at the position, and succeeds.

I am the first in my family to attended The Ohio State University in my family. My favorite buckeye would have to be Thad Matta because of his kindness in front of the camera and his performance on the court with his team. Thad is one of two coaches nationally to post 20 wins in each of his 13 seasons as head coach. The things that Thad has done that amazes me is the way he deals with his players. He shows them discipline at every practice, while at every game he tries his hardest to reward them with a win. Growing up playing basketball and other sports i always fallowed buckeye athletics but i loved to watch Thad and the basketball team. Thad is one of my idles for one reason and one reason only, he performs with his team on the court and played amazingly aggressive defense.

Zach Nappi

I'm a current freshman, taking classes at both OSU's Marion and Delaware Branch's. I have a fascination with History, as well as the military and warfare. I like to travel, kayak, hike, box, and I plan to see the world! A career in the government's security and defense program has caught my eye; or I can fulfill my goal by joining the military (becoming an officer) and see all parts of the world.

My favorite Buckeye would have to be my grandfather. He enrolled at OSU in the early 1950's and studied dentistry, where he later opened up his own dentist practice in Puyallup, Washington. He has become the smartest and most successful person that i know. Both me and my brother became Buckeye's because of his presence at this great university many decades ago.
