OSUAD Wins Leadership Award at the 2022 University Sports Summit

Columbus, Ohio — Ohio State Athletics Director Gene Smith Won the David Williams II Leadership Award at this week’s 2022 University Sports Summit.

This award is given to an athletics director who embodies exemplary leadership, vision, service and dedication in inter-university athletics.

“Jean is completely and passionately focused on making a difference for young men and women,” said Sandy Barbour, a former athletics director at Penn State University.

The award is named after David Williams, who has been with Ohio for 14 years. He died in 2019.

“I am very honored and honored to have the opportunity to win this award in the name of David,” Smith said. “He was a pioneer. We are from very different places, but we share one passion and it was a student athlete who all of us in this room serve.”

This is Smith’s 18th year in Ohio.
