COLUMBUS, Ohio – Each year over 4,000 individuals and corporations support Ohio State student-athletes as members of the Buckeye Club. In appreciation and recognition of their loyalty and commitment, the Ohio State Department of Athletics has identified the week of October 26th as Thank You Week 2014.

“At Ohio State we are fortunate to have very loyal and generous supporters,” said Gene Smith, Director of Athletics. “For over 35 years the Buckeye Club has provided a solid foundation of support for our athletics program. We would not be able to provide the opportunities and first-class experience for our student-athletes without this annual support.”

Each day of Thank You Week will focus on highlighting and recognizing particular people and projects that directly impact over 1,000 Buckeye student-athletes in 36 sports. Additionally, daily student-athlete video features will be sent to current members of the Buckeye Club. The week will culminate with the annual Buckeye Club Reception at French Field House prior to the home football game on November 1st.
