Ohio State QB Lincoln Kienholz speaks at high school sports awards

Ohio State sophomore quarterback Lincoln Kienholz, the 2022-23 USA TODAY national boys high school athlete of the year, will be the guest speaker at the Central Ohio High School Sports Awards on June 20 at Mershon Auditorium.

Kienholz, who starred in football, basketball and baseball for Pierre (South Dakota) Riggs, is best known to Buckeyes fans for playing in the Cotton Bowl on Dec. 29 after starter Devin Brown was injured in the second quarter. Ohio State lost to Missouri 14-3.

In his home state, Kienholz is in a league of his own as a quarterback. He was a three-year starter at Riggs, leading the team to three straight state titles and becoming South Dakota’s all-time passing leader in 2022 with 9,100 career yards.

As a senior, Kienholz completed 66% of his passes for 3,422 yards and 46 touchdowns and rushed for 1,435 yards and 24 scores.

The Athlete of the Year in each sport – 30 total – will be announced at the Central Ohio High School Sports Awards. Nine top awards will also be announced, including overall boys and girls athletes of the year, boys and girls coaches of the year, overall boys and girls teams of the year, courage award, school spirit award and lifetime achievement award .

The event is part of the USA Today High School Sports Awards, the largest high school sports recognition program in the country. Tickets can be purchased online.
