Zach Boren has played fullback for Ohio State for three seasons, and just as his senior year was under way, he swapped sides of the ball and is the Buckeye’s new linebacker. When Boren wears his jersey on Saturdays, it truly is to represent the name on the front, not the back; his selflessness will help the Buckeyes stay undefeated this season.
While he’s played fullback since 2009 for the Buckeyes, his only considerable yardage has been receiving; he hasn’t been an offensive threat, but he’s been a quarterback’s best friend. He’s practically been a starter since beginning his Ohio State career, and was awarded the team’s Outstanding First-Year Offensive Player award in 2009.
Something his teammates refer to often is Boren’s incredible talent for blocking. In 2011, Boren was honored with the team’s Rex Kern Award as the team’s outstanding back because of his powerful blocking ability. Many big plays over the years were quietly aided by a Boren block at some point on the field.

The Ohio State football team is off to a 9-0 start to the 2012 season and that is thanks in part to an improved offense. Part of that improvement can be attributed to the play of the wide receivers, who have become a bigger part of the attack.
