Ohio State strength and conditioning coach Anthony Schlegel took down an unidentified fan who ran on the field during the Ohio State-University of Cincinnati football game on Saturday.

Schlegel, a former linebacker for the Buckeyes and state wrestling champion, stopped the fan in the middle of the field and body slammed him onto the turf, noted (video below).

Moments later, a security guard ran up to assist Schlegel in escorting the wayward fan off the field at Ohio Stadium in Columbus.

Ohio State went on to defeat the University of Cincinnati 50-28.

Schlegel's pro experience includes playing for the New York Jets and Cincinnati Bengals, reports WCPO.
