John Ivanic has passed
Sad news as he was a great HUSKIE and a valued member of the Central Ohio community where I live and worked for many years.

I met him and got to know him just a little at some NIU Soldier Field games, MAC Championship games and pre-game warm ups for the two Buckeye games played at the Horseshoe in Columbus.

I believe that kick was shown on the NFL Today the next day by Brent Musberger. I remember watching it from my dorm room. Probably one if not the biggest kick in NIU history.

He was at homecoming last year. Turns out my NIU friend is his second cousin so we kicked back and had a few drinks.

Yes he was relatively young and my condolences to his family.

Seemed like a great guy. Condolences to the family.

I too remember him as a great kicker, and remember his quips leading up to the Huskies taking on the Buckeyes!

John was a first-class guy and a true ambassador for both the university and football program.

Will never forget his game winning kick in Madison.
