Ohio State QB announces retirement from football
One former walk-on quarterback for Ohio State has announced that he is hanging it up.
Danny Vanatsky is a quarterback that joined the Buckeyes in 2018 as a preferred walk-on. An in-state product, Vanatsky played his high school ball at Cincinnati Hills Christian Academy.
“When I arrived in Columbus three years ago, I had no idea the place and people would have such a tremendous impact on me,” wrote Vanatsky on Twitter. “I quickly found out that the Ohio State football program wasn’t only about athletic development.”
“This was one of the toughest decisions of my life, but I am ready to move on from college football and pursue other interests. As a walk-on, I am beyond thankful for the guys I came in with as we all tried to figure out how to survive together.”
Here is the full note Vanatsky shared on Twitter:
Forever a Buckeye ❤️ pic.twitter.com/RhKxneoVQW

Though he never appeared in a game, Vanatsky will go down as a forever Buckeye that was also a part of two College Football Playoff teams. Best of luck to Vanatsky in his future endeavors.
