Terry Glenn, the well-known Ohio State legend and NFL star, has tragically died in a car accident in Irving, Texas. He was only 43 years old.
Glenn initially joined the Buckeyes as a walk-on but distinguished himself and was honored as an All-American and All-Big Ten wide receiver. He won the Fred Biletnikoff Award in 1995 for being the best receiver in the nation. He still holds Ohio State's record for the most receiving yards scored in a game, including 253 yards and four touchdown catches from his impressive nine-reception game against Pittsburgh in 1995.
In Glenn's final season with Ohio State, he achieved a total of 17 touchdowns and ran 411 receiving yards. He still retains his ranking as the second highest wide receiver scorer in Buckeye's history. Only David Boston, who ran 1,435 yards in 1998, scored higher.
Throughout his NFL career, Glenn played for several top teams, including the Dallas Cowboys, the New England Patriots and the Green Bay Packers. He went to the Super Bowl with the Patriots twice, in 1996 and 2001, and was Sports Illustrated's Rookie of the Year for 1996. He also was part of the Pro Bowl in 1999. As an NFL wide receiver, he ran 8,823 yards and made more than 44 touchdowns in his career.
Glenn leaves behind many friends, family members and fans to mourn him, including his fiancé.
