Meadowdale High School graduate Ke’Von Huguely, a junior walk-on wide receiver for the Ohio State Buckeyes, caught a 35-yard touchdown pass from Joe Burrow for the Scarlet team in the first half of the spring game Saturday at Ohio Stadium.
Scarlet build a 28-24 halftime lead over Grey in front of a crowd of close to 84,000 fans.
Huguely was Meadowdale’s MVP in 2014. He could have played Division II or III football, he said last year, but joined Ohio State’s program as a walk-on in the fall of 2015.
“Of course, I don’t play, so I feel like every practice is my game,” Huguely said. “I try to give the defense a look. If the first or second string need me at different positions if people go down in camp, they tell me what to do and I just go.”
Two other Dayton area walk-ons are playing in the game: Chaminade-Julienne grad Cin’Quan Haney, a senior cornerback, and Thurgood Marshall grad Derrick Malone, a junior tight end.
Wayne grad Robert Landers is getting plenty of playing time on the defensive line, for the Scarlet team.
