Five players from Orrville have been listed on 19 Ohio State rosters. The first Red Rider to make a Buckeyes' roster was Craig Pack. He arrived in Columbus in 1978 as a linebacker and left in 1982 as the starting center. Pack started every game of his senior season. The team finished the year by defeating Michigan, 24-14, and BYU, 47-17, in the Holiday Bowl.

At Orrville, Pack played linebacker and tight end. He caught 26 passes for 387 yards as a senior and the program had a 25-game winning streak during the three years that he played.

And a little bit more on Craig Pack:

Orrville, home of Smuckers, Smith Dairy and the best fireworks of any small town in Ohio.

Buckeye Lake would like to have a word with you:

If I'm not mistaken, Bolyard transferred to Indiana where he played some QB and was their starting punter in 1988.

Jono0398,
I believe that Massillon Washington is the high school Zwick attended.

I think that school might have a chance to make an appearance in the countdown...

He was at Orrville and transferred to Massillon.
