The Ohio High School Athletic Association member schools have voted to pass 12 of the 14 proposed revisions to the OHSAA Constitution, according to a press release.

The Name, Image, and Likeness proposal was not passed. According to the press release, the proposal would have allowed student-athletes to sign endorsement agreements as long as their team, school, or OHSAA logo was not used.
