Dr Horvath will definitely represent 22.  What an incredible story!

But Leo Hayden was also an incredible rb, and also playing with and behind a really good group of running backs with the super sophs and Otis.

We ate in the same cafeteria.  The transformation of his body, freshmen to sophomore year, was phenomenal.  He went from looking like a pretty decently built young man to looking like a world class body builder.  And must have doubled his neck size.  IIRC, neck size increases were something Woody stressed for his rbs.  

Maybe someone that actually played would know infinitely more about this.  Likely be an interesting read.

Matt, it's getting closer and closer to the end.  Thanks again, love reading these look backs.  Ohio State really has had many, many great players.  Getting a little more background is fun to read.

Beat everyone, in every sport, all the time!!!

Awesome what’s Hayden has done in his post football career. Really love to read what these players are doing post football and see how their lives have progressed. Thanks for all you have researched and wrote on this series Matt!

Just posting and hoping my comment isn’t deleted.

Horvath is the clear choice, but Hayden was a stud
