Ohio State’s tight end Jake Hausmann, a letterwinner for the Scarlet and Gray from 2018-20, is one of five student-athletes to receive and Anne and Woody Hayes Award.
The award, established in 1979, provides one or more varsity athletes with financial assistance for postgraduate studies. The recipients of this scholarship are student-athletes who have demonstrated academic achievement (3.00 grade-point average minimum) and leadership qualities.
Hausmann has already earned his degree in strategic communications after playing in 30 games for the Buckeyes over the last four seasons. A native of Cincinnati, Hausmann played in 13 times of 14 games for the Big Ten champions as a junior in 2019 and caught a touchdown pass in a victory at Rutgers that season.
In the classroom, Hausmann was a three-time Academic All-Big Ten selection and five-time OSU Scholar-Athlete. In the summer of 2018, he was part of a job shadowing opportunity with former Buckeye tight end Jake Ballard, who is an engineer with the Howard Henna Lenker Group.
Earlier this month, Hausmann signed a rookie free agent contact with the Detroit Lions.
