RB Joe Gantz (2006-09) was a hard-working tailback who also played special teams. He had a total of 8 carries for 12 yards during his Ohio State career. At Wooster, Gantz was voted the Ohio Cardinal Conference Offensive Player of the Year and was a second team All-Ohioan. He was also an All-American and All-Ohioan in lacrosse.

One of Joe's eight carries for the Buckeyes. That's eight more than I would've dreamed of. [Edit: for myself.] ;-)

The Speech and Debate team seems like a big point of emphasis at this school. Amazing that they have been in 63 national speech and debate tournaments. Times have changed though, in the old days in my area a speech and debate meant two guys went outside to discuss and whomever came back through the door first was the winner.

Don’t know how notable he is, but Marquise Blair (Seahawks) went to school at Wooster. 

What we have currently available is what we have available.

BuckeyeDropout,
Thank you, will add Marquise to the notable list later today.

Sorry for not doing it sooner, but relaxing in the pool with my family and friends.

Not directly Wooster High School related but related to football and Wooster. Charles Follis was the first African American to get paid to play football. Doing so while in Wooster.

Also Dick Schafrath played for Woody at OSU and then the Browns. Won titles in 57 for us and 64 with the Browns.

Isn't it pronounced Worcester?

Sorry, the heat has made me slap happy.

Varys: I've always hated the bells. They ring for horror, a dead king, a city under siege. 
Tyrion: A wedding. 
Varys: Exactly.
