For the second year in a row, Ohio State wrestling star Kyle Snyder was named the Big Ten’s male Athlete of the Year. Snyder, who won three NCAA titles during his time at Ohio State, became the first male athlete to win the honor in back-to-back seasons. Snyder beat Penn State’s Saquon Barkley and Iowa’s Josey Jewell among others for the 2017-18 honor. Indiana swimmer Lilly King was named the conference’s female Athlete of the Year.
