Men’s Volleyball (2008-11)
Steven Kehoe guided the 2011 Ohio State men’s volleyball team on a magical run which ended under the confetti as NCAA national champions. The Buckeye setter snagged Most Outstanding Player distinction for both the MIVA and NCAA postseason tournaments, leading to OSU Male Athlete of the Year recognition as well.
The 2011 title campaign also included Kehoe’s second of back-to-back All-America and MIVA Player of the Year awards. He corralled All-MIVA First Team status thrice (2009, 2010, 2011). Kehoe remains ranked Top 10 in school history for career assists (4,012), digs (595) and aces (97).
A Fisher College of Business graduate with a degree in Business Administration – Finance, Real Estate, Risk Management and Insurance, Kehoe earned nearly every academic award out there, including the 2011 Big Ten Medal of Honor. He is currently running his own real estate company in Chicago.
Quoting Kevin Burch, Ohio State Head Coach
“When I think of our program’s “Mount Rushmore”, there is no doubt Steve Kehoe is on it. Steve was as accomplished as any student-athlete on the court and in the classroom, but what I’ll remember more than anything, is his exceptional leadership and character. He personified what it means to be a Buckeye and I couldn’t be happier that he is now representing our program among the many Ohio State greats in the Varsity O Hall of Fame.”
