In J.T. Barrett’s final season at Ohio State, the redshirt senior added yet another title to his cluttered resume Thursday when the Big Ten announced he had been named the Big Ten Griese-Brees Quarterback of the Year.

It is the third time in Barrett’s four-year career that he was honored with the recognition. He won the award last season and in his redshirt freshman season at quarterback during the 2014 campaign.

Barrett is the first three-time captain in program history, and is the holder of 24 Ohio State and Big Ten records.

This season, Barrett has enjoyed another strong campaign, completing 217-of-328 passes (66.2 percent) for 2,728 yards. He also has 33 touchdown passes and only seven interceptions. The dual-threat quarterback has also continued to show his mobility this season, rushing 130 times for 672 yards and scoring nine times.
