Derek Isaman graduated the same year I graduated from Marion Harding. He was a bad man.

I can't help but think that Fremont Ross will always mean Charles Woodson to me, though.

Brudzinski was a member of that 'Killer B's' defense for the Dolphins. 

Another great Buckeye player from Ross was End Bob Shaw 1941-42: Shaw was part of the Buckeyes' first NCAA National Championship team in 1942 and was named a first-team All American for that season. He also lettered in basketball and track, helping the Buckeyes to their first Western Conference track crown in 1942. His National Football League career began in 1945 when he joined the Cleveland Rams. The Rams won the Championship in his rookie year. In the off-season, he played for the Toledo Jeeps of the National Basketball League. He played for the Cleveland/Los Angeles Rams (1945–1949) and the Chicago Cardinals (1950). He was the NFL leader in receiving touchdowns with 12 in 1950 and was the first player to catch five touchdowns in a game. He played two seasons for the Calgary Stampeders, winning the Dave Dryburgh Memorial Trophy in 1951 and 1952. After his release by Calgary, he signed with the Toronto Argonauts in late September 1953 on the strength of his place-kicking. After his retirement, Shaw served as an assistant coach with the Baltimore Colts, and San Francisco 49ers before becoming head coach of the New Mexico Military Institute in 1960. In three seasons at NMMI, Shaw had a 22–6–1 record. He later moved to the Canadian Football League where he coached the Saskatchewan Roughriders to a 16–14–2 record over two seasons and the Toronto Argonauts to an 8–20 record from 1965 to 1966. In 1976, he won the Annis Stukus Trophy(coach of the year) while with the Hamilton Tiger-Cats.

A few other Little Giants who became Buckeyes: Center Howard Teifke 1943, 1946-48; HB Hal ‘Windy’ Wendler  1923-1925; HB Bob Demmel  1947-1950; Center Gene Geib 1950; Center Bob Heid 1949-1951  Captain in ‘51; Tackle Tim McCarthy 1924-25; Tackle Bill Miller 1948-1950

Famous names you may know: NFL players Charles Woodson (yeah, that Charles Woodson)

This should have resulted in immediate disqualification.

In defense of Lytle, he would have done a whole lotta sitting had he come to Ohio State (his college years and Archie Griffin's overlapped by three years).

I remember Woodson was always considered a lock for TTUN, even though we were obviously recruiting at a high level by then. I don't recall if there was a specific reason why, such as the influence of a coach.

The most "loud mouth, disrespect" poster on 11W.

shoulda gone anywhere else, except maybe Texas at that time.  I could even have forgiven ND

Being a rival, we always "Took a Fremont and wiped our Little Giant". Nothing like quality HS humor.

Charles Woodson? Never heard of her. 

Still not giving a damn for the whole state of Michigan.
