State vs. Ohio
Though it was a close game, this weeks MVP goes to Todd
Boeckman, the senior leader who stepped up to lead the Buckeyes to a close win
By Eric Geier
When things started to heat up,
cooler heads prevailed. Todd Boeckman remained calm in a game that had players
and fans on the edge of their seats. Boeckman went 16 of 26 for 110 yards and
had eight rushes for 26 yards.
The numbers may not jump off the
page, but it was his leadership and levelheadedness that did the job on
Saturday. When Boeckman lost the snap in the end zone during the third quarter,
it seemed that the tide was turning. It was the perfect moment to ruffle
Boeckman’s feathers, but he didn’t let the mistake get to him, he stayed calm
and did his job. He didn’t try to force any passes when the pressure started to
build, the sign of a veteran quarterback.
