Former Ohio State offensive lineman Dave Monnot has died at the age of 50, according to a report from the Canton Repository. He was battling brain cancer.

Monnot was at Ohio State in the early 1990s, playing for head coach John Cooper. He started at offensive guard in three consecutive seasons and was a member of a Buckeyes squad that shared a B1G title with Wisconsin in 1993, finishing with a 10-1-1 record.

Monnot was also a local legend, as he played as an offensive and defensive lineman at Central Catholic in Canton, Ohio. He helped lead his team to its first state football championship in 1988.

After a great season in 1988, the two-way lineman was named the Ohio Division IV Lineman of the Year and was an honorable mention for USA Today’s All-America team.

In 2016, Monnot was inducted into the Stark County Football Hall of Fame.
