The Football Fever: OSU Job Fair an extention of Real Life Wednesdays


COLUMBUS -- Ohio State head coach Urban Meyer wants to build the total man.

His fifth annual Job Fair convened in Ohio State Friday night. More than 100 human resource representatives from over 50 companies and a dozen business sectors were represented to discuss professional opportunities with members of the football team as well as student-athletes from additional Ohio State varsity sports.

"We like to talk about testimony," Meyer told reporters. "Testimony means it's happened, not theory anymore. Several of our players have received jobs because of this (job fair.)"

Meyer says the program has been a boost for recruiting over the last year and a half.

The sixth-year coach is committed to a players livelihood long after the cheering stops. The Job Fair is an extension of Meyer's Real Life Wednesdays which addresses issues facing the players.
