COLUMBUS, Ohio – The Ohio State men’s lacrosse team has selected two captains for the 2022 season, head coach Nick Myers announced today. They are fifth-year senior Jackson Reid and fourth-year senior Jack Myers.

“Jackson and Jack embody what Buckeye lacrosse stands for and will be great leaders for us,” said head coach Nick Myers. “They live out our culture every day both on the field and off. They’re men who do the right thing, and as a result their teammates follow them. We’re proud and confident in their ability and look forward to attacking this season together.”

Not only are Reid and Myers two of Ohio State’s most experienced players – they’ve combined to play in 74 career games – they’re also two of the most productive. Both have over 100 career points and are among the top returning goal and point producers not only in the Big Ten Conference, but also the nation.

Off the field, Reid and Myers are also leaders. They’re active in all of the team’s community service endeavors, including reading to children as part of the 2nd & 7 Foundation and introducing lacrosse to new communities with the Urban Lacrosse Academy.

“It’s an honor and privilege to be selected by my teammates to be one of the captains for this season,” said Reid. “I look forward to leading this group alongside Jack, and will work every day to make us the best versions of ourselves.”

Reid, a four-year starter, has 26 or more points in each season with the Buckeyes and enters the 2022 season with 84 career goals, 35 assists and 119 points. He’s played in every game since his freshman season in 2018 and has been one of Ohio State’s most consistent and steady performers. Last year, in an 11-game Big Ten-only schedule, he had eight multi-point games and finished the season with 10 goals in the final four games.

A sport industry major, Reid ranks 26th on Ohio State’s all-time scoring list and is on pace to become the 13th player with 100 career goals scored. Reid is an OSU Scholar-Athlete, Academic All-Big Ten honoree and earlier this fall became the latest recipient of the Michael R. Breschi Memorial Scholarship.

Like Reid, Myers has been a mainstay and a consistent point-producer for the Buckeyes since day one. He already has 111 points in just 29 career games – an average of nearly four points per game – on 63 goals and 48 assists. Last spring, on the strength of a 45-point season that included a team-high 34 goals, Myers was a first-team All-Big Ten honoree. He finished third in the conference in goals per game (3.09), fourth in points per game (4.09) and scored at least two goals in each of Ohio State’s 11 games.

On the career lists, Myers is already 28th in career points and is on pace to possibly become just the third player in program history with 100 career goals and 100 career assists. He’s been a standout in the classroom as well, earning Academic All-Big Ten and OSU Scholar-Athlete honors while majoring in finance at the Fisher College of Business.

“It’s an honor to be voted captain by my peers alongside Jackson,” said Myers. “There have been so many great Buckeyes who’ve worn the “C” on their chest, and I can’t wait to uphold the standard they have set. I understand the responsibility that comes with this distinction, and I look forward to making Buckeye lacrosse proud this spring.”
