State Senator Larry Obhof recognizes Urban Meyer on the floor of the Ohio Senate.

COLUMBUS— Members of the Ohio Senate recognized OSU Football Coach Urban Meyer yesterday for leading the team to a 12-0 record. State Senator Larry Obhof – who attended the same Ashtabula County high school as Meyer – presented him with a resolution honoring his achievements during Senate session. 

"Urban Meyer coached the OSU football team to an extraordinary season, but he is more than a football coach," Obhof said. "He works to ensure that his players are prepared for life after football, and encourages them to be role models for the university." 

“As a fellow native of Northeast Ohio, it was a privilege to present Coach Meyer with a Senator Resolution honoring him for his leadership with the Ohio State Football team this season. Coach Meyer embodies the values of Ashtabula such as perseverance, dedication, and a commitment to excellence,” Cafaro said.

The Ohio Senate also recognized the OSU football team on their highly successful season as well as the OSU Marching Band.
