NEWPORT BEACH, Ca. - Ohio State linebacker Ross Homan has been named the Lott IMPACT Player of the Week.

Homan, a 6-0, 227-pound senior from Coldwater, Ohio, led the Buckeyes in tackles with seven, had his first interception of the season and forced a fumble that led to a touchdown in a 43-7 win over Ohio.

It was the seventh career interception for Homan.

An All-Big Ten academic choice last season, Homan majors in Family Resource Management. He was a second-team All-Big Ten performer a year ago when he led the team with 108 tackles.

At Ohio State, he is very active in military veterans groups and the local VA hospital. Homan is also a regular participant in school reading programs and has been a leader in setting up events in his hometown of Coldwater in the name of his former high school coach, who passed away earlier this year.

Ohio State will receive $1,000 for its general scholarship fund in recognition of Homan's achievement.

Other players nominated for the IMPACT Player of the Week were Greg Jones of Michigan State, Ryan Kerrigan of Purdue, Patrick Peterson of LSU and Alex Wujciak of Maryland.

Named after Hall of Famer Ronnie Lott, the Lott is awarded to college football's Defensive IMPACT Player of the Year. Now in its sixth year, the Lott is the first college football award to equally recognize athletic performance and the personal character attributes of the player.

Sponsored by The Pacific Club IMPACT Foundation in Newport Beach, the award is given to the player who exhibits the same characteristics Lott embodied during his distinguished career: Integrity, Maturity, Performance, Academics, Community and Tenacity.

Past winners of The Lott IMPACT Trophy:
2004 - David Pollack, Georgia
2005 - DeMeco Ryans, Alabama
2006 - Dante Hughes, California
2007 - Glenn Dorsey, LSU
2008 - James Laurinaitis, Ohio State
2009 - Jerry Hughes, TCU

In six years, the Pacific Club IMPACT Foundation has donated more than $750,000 to various charities, including $25,000 to each of the winners' universities.

Voters for the award include selected members of the national media, previous finalists, the Board of Directors of the IMPACT Foundation, the IMPACT Foundation Board of Advisors comprised of retired NFL players and the Legends Coaches, a distinguished group of former college head coaches.

Todd Boeckman lands a spot on top 50 Ohio Athletes!

Todd Boeckman landed a spot on JJHuddle's “Top 50 Ohio High School Athletes of the Decade” for 1999-2009. Every Monday through Friday from now until March 26, a new athlete will be released. He is number 22 on the list for Football, Basketball and Baseball, 1999-2003.

Boeckman earned 11 varsity letters at St. Henry and led the Redskins to a state final in every sport (and two state titles). As a freshman QB he guided St. Henry to a runner-up finish in D-V. That same school year the Redskins – with Boeckman as sixth man – were runner-up in boys basketball in D-IV. That spring the Redskins won the D-IV state baseball title. St. Henry also won the D-IV state baseball title in Boeckman’s senior year.


Individually, Boeckman’s name appears among the leaders in multiple state records and sports.


In football Boeckman ranks No. 15 in career passing yards (7,021 yards, 1999-2002) and No. 18 in career passing TDs (64, 1999-2002).

In baseball Boeckman is tied for No. 2 in Ohio history for most RBIs in a season (66 in 2003). Since his performance no one else has hit more than 56. He’s also tied for No. 3 for HRs in a season (18 in 2003), tied for No. 3 with HRs in five straight games (2003), tied for No. 4 in HRs for a career (40 from 2000-2003) and No. 12 for most RBIs in a career (140 (00-03). On the mound Boeckman is tied for No. 8 in most consecutive wins (19, 2001-03).

The 2003 St. Henry team (Boeckman’s senior year) ranks No. 3 all-time in Ohio for hits in a season (389).

In basketball Boeckman ended his career No. 9 on St. Henry’s career scoring list with over 1,000 points. He led the Redskins in scoring and rebounding his sophomore, junior and senior seasons.

Boeckman earned All-Ohio honors (a total of seven times) in all three sports.

*Just a side note Terrelle Pryor is not on this list!
