Best of luck with both plans!  Sounds like the young man knows about working hard, the secret to most success!!

Beat everyone, in every sport, all the time!!!

Good luck, Sean. BTW, Cameron Johnston is not a bad guy to emulate.  

I'd rather be an hour early than a minute late.

Up and down career in Columbus, but the kid just couldn’t miss a PAT. 

That’s one hell of a backup plan, best of luck Sean!

What we have currently available is what we have available.

The greater distance for PATs in NFL puts him the range where he starts getting iffy. He made his short PATs and short FGs, but didn't consistently drill them down the middle, and he never made a long FG.

No chance for the NFL, but he has a great "backup plan"

He could when Meyer was staring him down from a few yards away, during the spring games.  I felt his frustration, really.  PKing is so much a  combination of form and headgame.  Anyway, best of luck to him pursuing everything he wants.  Live long and prosper, and make us proud

The injuries aside, he had a solid run in Columbus. 

Admire him taking a serious shot at pro ball, and hope he gets a chance somewhere, but looks like he's prepared for life after Ohio State in any regard.

I'm not around that much, running exhausted and lost...

All too familiar with groin injuries ruining a kicking career. I feel for Sean, but it sounds like he has a pretty good plan for life ahead.

This is definitely where I parked my car.

Felt like that guy was a 9 year veteran with the Buckeyes lol! Good luck, Sean

I'm sure he'll get some tryouts.  All in all, he was very solid as a Buckeye.  

And those Browns are in a continuous search for a reliable kicker....

Who knows, maybe they'll find their version of Gary Anderson.  Sean looks like he could be Anderson's brother.

I know a guy who can help him get into law school...

If you have nothing to hide you have nothing to fear.

Must be frustrating to develop an injury that sneaks up on you from wear and tear (no pun) right before a game. 

During my time specialists really didn’t seem as tight knit as these guys seem to be. Had there been such a culture when I was in high school I probably would have looked into long snapping instead of just sticking to LT. 

Tressel did a great job in building the importantance of the special teams and Meyer did an excellent job of making it a unit. It’s gives a lot of Oline kids the opportunity to play at the next level. 

If you die before you die, then you won't die when you die.

It really is too bad, because he was an absolute lock to break the school scoring record before that last injury.

Kicker is a position where it's not only possible to peak well after your college years, it happens all the time. So if he has confidence in himself, I think he should stick with it.

Woody loved the special teams and his specialists were tight.  It's in the Buckeye DNA as long as I can remember.

Good luck to him I hope nothing but the best happens to him in the future.

I’m impressed that he took himself out.  I think some athletes may not have.  It could have made that game very different if he tried to play.

The first FG was a chip shot but the 2nd & 3rd could have been missed by a hurt kicker.  Those FG’s changed the score from 17-14 to 23-14 in the 3rd quarter.
