Bravo - Encore

Welcome to
Bravo ~ Encore

It was a time of uncertainty after tournaments, championships, and team events were canceled due to the Coronavirus (COVID-19).

Recently, the NCAA DI Council granted a waiver allowing additional eligibility for spring sport student-athletes whose seasons were impacted.

This page is devoted to celebrate the careers of our winter and spring senior student-athletes who did not have the opportunity to complete their seasons and are taking the next step in their careers and to highlight spring seniors who have gained another year of eligibility for spring 2021.

We hope you will enjoy these tributes to our Buckeyes.

Please enjoy Bravo ~ Encore.
