Beavercreek’s Zach Domicone

Zach Domicone’s recruitment by Oho State started and finished in a matter of hours. Since then the Beavercreek senior has had some time to think about the whirlwind. “At first it was kind of crazy and hard to believe but it started to
sink in pretty fast,” Domicone said. “I think I deserve it and I think
I have the ability to play at that level. Today, though, to finally
sign those papers felt good.” Domicone is the first player from Beavercreek to commit to the Buckeyes
since 1969 when Randy Cowman headed to Columbus to play for Woody Hayes.

Since then the Beavercreek senior has had some time to think about the whirlwind.

“At first it was kind of crazy and hard to believe but it started to sink in pretty fast,” Domicone said. “I think I deserve it and I think I have the ability to play at that level. Today, though, to finally sign those papers felt good.”

Domicone and 25 other players from the Greater Western Ohio Conference signed their names to letters of intent Wednesday at the conference’s first annual National Signing Day Ceremony at Wayne’s Booster Center. All players going to an NCAA Division I or I-AA school were invited.

Since hearing from the Buckeyes and committing to them shortly thereafter, Domicone has had a chance to share some more time with OSU coaches. Although he starred as a quarterback mainly in high school, Domicone projects as a safety at Ohio state.

“I’ve had some more time to visit with the coaches which is nice,” Domicone said. “And they’re still looking at me as a safety.”

Ohio State head coach Jim Tressel and recruiting coordinator John Peterson visited Beavercreek High School last Monday.

Domicone is the first player from Beavercreek to commit to the Buckeyes since 1969 when Randy Cowman headed to Columbus to play for Woody Hayes.

The laurel seems fitting for a player who helped lead Creek to its first wining season since 1991 this past fall. The Beavers finished 6-4.

“I think it brings some credibility to the program and builds it up a bit,” Domicone said of his scholarship. “I’m just happy that I’m able to give some of the younger kids some motivation and something to strive for.”

Domicone admitted he may feel like a little kid himself when he reports to Ohio State on June 14. There might be some butterflies.

“Maybe,” Domicone said. “Maybe…at first.”
