12/07/17 - 2017 RIMINGTON TROPHY AWARD WINNER: The two-time first-team all-Big Ten Conference performer leads an offensive line that has powered the Buckeyes to national rankings of No. 6 in total offense, No. 5 in scoring, No. 15 rushing, No. 28 in passing, No. 1 in first downs and No. 5 in third down percentage. Price is from Austintown, Ohio, and has already graduated with his degree in business administration with a specialization in operation's management. He was a first-team All-American in 2016 by the American Football Coaches Association and a strong candidate for additional All-America honors this year after already having been selected a mid-season All-American by the Associated Press. He is a finalist for the Senior CLASS Award, which honors student-athletes with notable achievements in four areas of excellence: community, classroom, character and competition and he was a semifinalist for the Outland Trophy. - Ohio State Football
11/30/17 - 2017 BIG TEN RIMINGTON-PACE OFFENSIVE LINEMAN OF THE YEAR (COACHES/MEDIA): Billy Price, Ohio State...Billy Price, the four-year starting offensive lineman for the Buckeyes who converted to center this season after three seasons as a guard, was named today as the Big Ten Conference's Rimington-Pace Offensive Lineman of the Year. Price, a two-time first-team all-Big Ten Conference performer, has been the leader of an Ohio State line that features two other first-team performers - left tackle Jamarco Jones and left guard Michael Jordan - and a third team honoree in right tackle Isaiah Prince. This group has powered the Buckeyes to national rankings of No. 4 in total offense, No. 5 in scoring and No. 13 rushing. The team is No. 1 in the Big Ten in all those categories and No. 2 in passing.
A first-team All-American in 2016 by the American Football Coaches Association, Price is a strong candidate for additional All-America honors this year after already having been selected a mid-season All-American by the Associated Press. He is one of the favorites for the Rimington Trophy, which goes to the nation's top center, and he is a finalist for the Senior CLASS Award, which honors student-athletes with notable achievements in four areas of excellence: community, classroom, character and competition. He was also a semifinalist for the Outland Trophy. The two-time team captain has set the Ohio State school record with 53 consecutive starts. He is the third consecutive Buckeye to win the Big Ten's offensive lineman of the year award, after Taylor Decker in 2015 and Pat Elflein last year. - Ohio State Football
11/07/17 - With a start this Saturday against Michigan State, Ohio State fifth-year senior C Billy Price (6-3, 312, 5.19, #54) will notch his 51st start, breaking Luke Fickell's school consecutive start record. One NFL scout told me that Price is the "toughest dude" he's scouted in the last year 10 years because nothing gets to him, he just continues to do his job and do it well. After starting his career at guard, he moved to center as a senior and has a realistic chance to be drafted higher than former teammate Pat Elflein (70th overall in the 2017 NFL Draft), who is starting for the Minnesota Vikings as a rookie. If Ohio State plays in the Big Ten Championship Game and he stays healthy, Price will finish his career 55 straight starts. - Dane Brugler, NFLDraftScout.com
11/02/17 - C Billy Price, a senior who was named to the Associated Press midseason All-America team in October, will tie a school record held by Luke Fickell on Saturday at Iowa with his 50th consecutive start. Price is on the Rimington Award watch list that honors the best center in the country. NFL scouts project Price as a potential high-round draft pick in 2018. He already has a degree from Ohio State.
