MOUNT VERNON — The man whose 3-pointer against Iowa State in this season’s NCAA Tournament secured the Ohio State men’s basketball team’s place in the Sweet 16 will be one of five current or former Buckeyes who will be hoping to leave a lasting impact in Mount Vernon.

Alongside Ohio State star point guard Aaron Craft, Ohio State trainer Anthony Schlegel, wrestler J.D. Bergman, offensive lineman Corey Linsley, linebacker Josh Perry and Church of Chapel Hill youth pastor Mark Glenn will come together on Thursday at the Mount Vernon High School auditorium to inform people how they can balance their work life with their faith in God.

“This event is one that can bring the community together,” Glenn said. “People can look at these individuals and rally around them.”

Glenn could not have planned this event alone. He relied on Schlegel to help him find the necessary people for this occasion. The former Buckeye, New York Jets and Cincinnati Bengals linebacker delivered for Glenn.

“I believe Anthony is a great motivator,” Glenn said. “People will be able to rally around him. We are looking to make this a bigger event. The people of Mount Vernon will be able to see that these leaders are able to share their faith and have success on and off the field. We have developed a strong friendship over the past three years.”

The one athlete many people will recognize at the event is Craft. The current floor general for the Big Ten tournament champions has received rave reviews thanks in part to his end-of-the-game heroics and tenacious defending. Glenn spoke highly of the Ohio State senior.
