Ohio State University has seen many notable professional athletes receive a degree from the institution. The school is home to Ohio Stadium or, as it more affectionately nicknamed, "The Horseshoe," which is also on the National Registry of Historic Places.
The school's football program is one of the most prestigious in the country. Many players and coaches have won multiple awards for their achievements on the field. For instance, Archie Griffin is the only two-time Heisman Trophy winner, which is given to the top college football player in the country. Eddie George, who was a running back for the Ohio State Buckeyes during the 1990's, also won the award.
The Buckeyes also have a reputable basketball program that once was home to Hall of Famers John Havlicek and Jerry Lucas. Furthermore, coaching legend Bobby Knight once attended and graduated from the school.
Olympic superstar Jesse Owens was once part of the school's track and field team. Finally, arguably the world's greatest golfer, Jack Nicklaus, attended the school.
Although there is stiff competition for athletes, the Bureau of Labor Statistics reports that employment opportunities are expected to increased by 12 percent in the coming years.
