Four players from Lakewood have been listed on 11 Ohio State rosters. Pete Cusick was the first, and best, Ranger to play in Columbus. The defensive tackle was a captain for the 1974 team and was an All-American and two-time All-Big Ten player. In 2000, he was named to the Ohio State All-Century Team and was inducted into the Ohio State Athletics Hall of Fame in 2012.
Pete also made your "Top 100..." from four years ago, Remy. https://www.elevenwarriors.com/forum/ohio-state-football/2015/06/55336/top-100-ohio-state-players-no-69

Nice. I wonder why that number stood out to you?
Just lucky, I guess. ;-)
Good stuff my man! I am really enjoying this series!
Is there any other town in Ohio where the gap in sports prestige between its public high school and its main private school is as stark as it is in Lakewood? St. Ed's is probably the state leader right now in boys' sports, while Lakewood seems to have had a rough few decades.
