No, this is not Groundhog Day and you are not Bill Murray.
Due to a clerical error on my part (two different charts), I mistakenly screwed up numbers 100, 99 and 98. Louisville is No. 100, Urbana is 99 and Cambridge is 98. To read the previous comments for Cambridge, go here.
Can't promise I won't screw something up in the future, counting to 100 is hard, but I'll try my best not to.
To give you some bonus material, here are teams 110-101:
Did not break down the teams above by player points.
Recruiting is said to be the lifeblood of college football. This series will countdown the top 100 high schools in Ohio that have provided the Buckeyes with football players. The rankings are based on how many times a player from each high school has been listed on Ohio State's roster between 1970 and 2018.
No. 98, Cambridge
Cambridge has produced three Ohio State players that appeared on 10 Ohio State rosters. The first player from the Bobcats was Doug Donley. He joined the Buckeyes in 1977 and spent four years in Columbus. Donley began his career at running back. However, he was switched to wide receiver and finished as one of Ohio State's "finest" in history.
Donley was a captain for the 1980 team and was named to the All-Big Ten team in 1979 and 1980. He finished his Ohio State career with 106 receptions, 2,252 receiving yards and 16 touchdowns. Donley also averaged 5.3 yards per carry on 12 rushing attempts. The Cowboys selected him in the second round of the 1981 NFL Draft. Donley played four seasons for Dallas and caught 55 passes for 898 yards and 4 touchdowns.
The second Cambridge player on Ohio State's roster was Bill Andrews. He was listed on the roster as a kicker in 1981 and 1982. Andrews attempted and made two extra points in the '81 season.
Terry White was the last Bobcat to suit up for the Scarlet and Gray. He was listed as a safety for Earle Bruce between 1983 and 1986. He played in 24 games and intercepted 7 passes.
Back To School
Cambridge High School is located in Guernsey County and competes in the East Central Ohio League (ECOL). The football team currently competes in Division IV, Region 15. The Bobcats last appearance in the State Playoffs was 2016. The school has a state title, but it is in golf (1994).
Cambridge has one state title. The Boys' golf team won the state championship in 1994.
Geno Ford was Ohio's Mr. Basketball in 1993 and accepted a scholarship to play for Ohio University. Gene Ford, Geno's father, was the basketball coach at Cambridge during his playing days. Geno is currently fourth on Ohio's all-time scoring list with 2,680 points. Jon Diebler, Luke Kennard and Jay Burson are above him. LeBron James is behind him with 2,646 points.
Ford was recently hired as the head coach of Stony Brook. He started his coaching career as a GA for OU in 1998. He has been the head coach at Muskingum, Kent State and Bradley. Ford led Kent State to the MAC regular season title in 2010 and 2011. He was also named the MAC Coach of the Year those seasons.
Explanation of the Rankings
School "A" had 14 players appear 16 times on Ohio State's roster. School "B" had 11 players appear 20 times on Ohio State's roster. School "B" will have the higher ranking. Why? Even though school "B" has less players, those players played for more years.
If two or more schools have the same number of appearances, the tie will be broken by the school with the highest average of roster appearances per player. If there is a tie in the average, the tie breaker will be the school with the most prominent Ohio State player.
