Brennon Davis is a rising junior participating in the Huntington Bucks Go Pro summer internship program. A two-time OSU Scholar-Athlete and Academic All-Big Ten selection in 2017, Davis is still figuring out what he wants to do with his career. Bucks Go Pro is a perfect way to do that.
Davis competes on the Men’s Soccer team and is majoring in Finance and Real Estate. He’s exploring his professional options in the area of development, at every level from commercial to state. Growing up in Dublin, Ohio, Davis was a standout on the Dublin Jerome High School soccer team and holds the most career saves in Celtic history. As an Ohio native, Davis has always loved the Scarlet and Gray.
“Being local, I grew up a Buckeye fan. The culture on and off the field, and the on and off the field opportunities that come with being a student-athlete are what ultimately made me choose Ohio State,” Davis said.
Davis is working with the Athletics Facilities team, helping to advance their goal of maintaining and managing the workings of Ohio State Athletics Facilities to the highest degree of perfection. While Davis says it is hard to sum up his internship experience and responsibilities in words, he has been involved in everything from setting up for events to dealing with logistics of the new athletics facilities and everything in between.
Being a part of both Bucks Go Pro and his own sports program, Davis has been amazed with his behind-the-scenes experience. Seeing everything that goes into making sure student-athletes can focus on being student-athletes has been one of the coolest parts for him.
The professional development aspect and opportunity to meet other student-athletes is what initially drew Davis to the growing Bucks Go Pro program, and he has thoroughly enjoyed his time in the internship so far.
As a goalkeeper for the Men’s Soccer program, number 32 will be a part of a new era for Ohio State soccer as a new head coach begins in 2018. Brian Maisonneuve, former Columbus Crew member and Indiana University standout, enters his first season coaching the Buckeyes this fall. Davis is excited to hit the reset button and start fresh to grow the successful history of the soccer program.
Davis’ favorite memory as a Buckeye is beating Michigan on the road in the final seconds during his freshman year. Despite Davis redshirting that season and not seeing any game time action, the double OT win was one of the best introductions to Ohio State culture that an athlete could get.

“It’s a really cool memory and it showed me what it means to be a Buckeye. In that moment I felt so much pride, which is kind of what Ohio State is all about,” Davis said.
