Schuss Stands Alone In OSU Record Books

Posted: Updated:
COLUMBUS, Ohio -

On his Twitter account, Logan Schuss describes himself briefly as "A Good Canadian Kid."

He's much better than good.

Ohio State's senior attackman stands as one of the most prolific scorers in NCAA history. He owns the OSU all-time record in goals scored (142) and he leads the Buckeyes into the NCAA Tournament Sunday. The Buckeyes are #3 seed in the 16-team tournament and will host Towson at 3pm at Ohio Stadium.  Schuss averages more than 3 and a half goals per game.

Schuss is one of four Canadian-born players on the OSU roster, and he grew up playing an indoor version of the sport called "box lacrosse." It's basically a more compact version of the outdoor game, and Schuss' skill set proved to be a perfect fit for the collegiate game.

Schuss says he'd like to return home to Canada after graduation (he grew up 5 minutes north of the Washington state border) and open his own lacrosse academy.

For now, he's eager to lift his OSU teammates toward a National Championship.

Ohio State has won six straight games and this past weekend won its first ever ECAC lacrosse championship.

Ohio State beat national powers Loyola (last year's National Champs) and Denver in back-to-back games to win the league title.
