The attorney for an Ohio State University student who ran onto the Ohio Stadium field during a football game on Saturday night said yesterday that his client has lost his full-ride scholarship because of the incident. Anthony J. Wunder, 21, hit the field in the second quarter of the game between the Buckeyes and the Cincinnati Bearcats. He was quickly tackled by former OSU linebacker Anthony Schlegel, now an assistant coach for the Buckeyes.
A student’s short-lived jaunt onto the Ohio Stadium field Saturday night ended with a hard tackle and a criminal-trespassing charge. Anthony J. Wunder, 21, a mechanical-engineering student at Ohio State University, is scheduled to appear in Franklin County Municipal Court this morning.
At Ohio State's football game against the University of Cincinnati, Dispatch photographer Adam Cairns managed to capture a now-famous photo. The image shows Ohio State strength and conditioning coach Anthony Schlegel tackling an Ohio State student, Anthony J. Wunder, 21, soon after Wunder ran onto the field. Reddit users challenged one another to create reimagined versions of Cairns' photo in the subreddit PhotoshopBattles.
Ray: I appreciate R.W. Brenning’s comments (Mailbox, last Sunday) about Ohio State football, but I have a different take on the situation. I believe that when individuals give up eight hours of their day, are charged $116 for the product (not including parking, etc.) and the coaches/players stink up the field, then they are entitled to voice their opinion.
