Poster of missing Ohio St player shown before game
COLUMBUS, Ohio - The Ohio State stadium went silent as an announcer called out the name of a missing football player and a police poster seeking information on his disappearance appeared on a monitor.
Twenty-two-year-old Kosta Karageorge was the last of 24 OSU players recognized before the Buckeyes' game against rival Michigan on Saturday. His family says he was last seen Wednesday.
The players recognized were mostly seniors making their final appearance for the Buckeyes at the team's last home game of the season.
The announcer said the entire university community was concerned about Karageorge and hoping for his safe return. Polite applause from among the 105,000 fans broke the silence at the end of the recognition.
Karageorge's mother says he texted her about his prior concussions the morning he disappeared.
