COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) – A student who ran onto the field during an Ohio State football game and was body-slammed by a coach is losing his scholarship amid his court case.

Defence attorney Mark Collins says officials on Tuesday started removing 21-year-old Anthony Wunder from the Evans Scholars programme, which covers tuition and housing for former golf caddies.

The fourth-year engineering student is charged with misdemeanour criminal trespassing. His attorney entered a not-guilty plea in Franklin County Municipal Court.

Wunder was stopped and slammed down by an assistant strength and conditioning coach Saturday during Ohio State’s home victory over Cincinnati. The coach, Anthony Schlegel, is a former Buckeyes line backer.

The hit has been a sensation on social media.

Coach Urban Meyer said he had a somewhat serious conversation with Schlegel about the hit.
