As center Billy Price took the field for Ohio State’s first offensive drive of the game against Michigan State Saturday, he set the record for most consecutive starts by an Ohio State player with his 51st start, surpassing former Ohio State defensive lineman and later co-defensive coordinator Luke Fickell.
Price has started every game since earning the starting right guard spot as a redshirt freshman in 2014. Last season at right guard, the then-first-time captain was named first-team All-American by American Football Coaches Association and first-team All-Big Ten.
Moving to center in 2017, Price was named to the preseason Rimington Award watch list, given to the nation’s top center. Ohio State’s center in 2016, Pat Elflein, took home the honor last season.
