Scottie Seymour Named Big Ten Medal of Honor Finalist


Ohio State baseball student-athlete Scottie Seymour has been named one of five male finalists for the Big Ten Medal of Honor. The award is given each year to the top female and male senior student-athlete on each Big Ten campus.

Seymour, a Maumee, Ohio, native has appeared in 38 games as a Buckeye and has played all over the field. As a utility player, he has seen action at first-base, second-base, third-base, catcher, outfield and designated hitter. This season, he has played in 11 games with six starts. He had a triple in his first start this season at Michigan and then followed it with a career-high three-hit game which included a double and triple two days later.

Off the field, he graduated last May with degrees in Finance and Economics. This year, he completed his masters of accounting. Seymour is a four-time Academic All-Big Ten honoree as well as a Big Ten Distinguished Scholar and has been named an OSU Scholar-Athlete four times. He also earned the Fisher College of Business Pace Setter Award in 2020 and graduated with honors through the Honors Cohort Program.
