Joe has lived most of his life in Central Ohio, and at an early age he watched Archie Griffin run 30 yards for a touchdown to beat That School Up North. At that moment, a love for Ohio State football was born and was nurtured with many trips to the 'Shoe to watch the Buckeyes play. He is a 1989 graduate of OSU and still lives in the area with his wife and seven children.
