Ohio State Vigil Honors Football Player Found Dead

Archives

 COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) – Ohio State football players and wrestlers are among those who attended a campus vigil for a teammate found dead in a trash bin with an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound.

The vigil was held after 22-year-old Kosta Karageorge’s body was found Sunday. He had disappeared four days earlier after sending his parents a text message that said concussions had messed up his head.

Karageorge had been a Buckeyes wrestler for three years and joined the football team as a walk-on this season, playing in one game.

The football team’s doctor has said he couldn’t comment on the medical care of student-athletes.

Wrestling coach Tom Ryan tells The Columbus Dispatch that Karageorge had no documented concussions as a wrestler.

Ryan says some teammates are wondering if they could’ve intervened to help Karageorge.
