Four years ago, when Chad Cacchio failed to get a single scholarship offer from a Division I school, he thought he would try Division III Denison in Granville, Ohio. But Ohio State asked Cacchio, a wide receiver from Upper Arlington, Ohio, to walk on, and he couldn't resist a chance to play for the Buckeyes. Until this season, his career had consisted almost entirely of work on the scout team. In three years he had played a total of 58 minutes and made five catches. But Cacchio didn't quit. An Academic All-Big Ten selection last year, Cacchio, a finance major, applied his off-field study habits to the game, spending time watching film and practicing against first-stringers such as future NFL cornerbacks Ahmed Plummer and Antoine Winfield. Though Cacchio still doesn't start, quarterback Steve Bellisari knows where to find him when he comes into a game. In Ohio State's 3-0 start Cacchio has four catches, three for touchdowns.
