Anthony Schlegel recorded a tackle on the Ohio Stadium field tonight for the first time since 2005.
Anthony Schlegel’s move might have been the best defensive play of the game.
Anthony Schlegel, who is a conditioning coach at Ohio State, intercepted the fan who ran on the field. As the fan was running away from security personnel, Schlegel wrapped his arms around him and threw him to the turf.
A record crowd of 108,362 roared its approval.
The fan was led off the field as Buckeyes players and team personnel congratulated Schlegel on the sideline not far from where he made the tackle.
Coach Urban Meyer was asked about Schlegel’s hit on the unsuspecting interloper.
He just laughed and walked back into the locker room.
