COLUMBUS, Ohio — No. 11 Ohio State will play host to Northern Kentucky Wednesday in the Connor Senn Match, the 20th annual, at Jesse Owens Memorial Stadium. First touch is set for 7 p.m.
Connor collapsed during Ohio State’s match at Akron Sept. 26, 2001, and died that night from a congenital heart defect. A native of Granville, Ohio, Connor was a freshman walk-on defender who had earned a starting position for the 2001 season. Soon after, The Connor Senn Memorial Fund was established by Connor’s father, Dr. Lance Senn.
The legacy of Connor Senn will never be forgotten at Ohio State.
Connor, whose No. 22 jersey hangs in the Ohio State lockerroom, was known for his tremendous work ethic, positive attitude and selfless play. “Play Like Connor Today” is the mantra of the Ohio State men’s soccer program.
