The countdown continues (53 to go)

Today we’re going old school with the countdown — #53, Randy Gradishar:

Randy Gradishar

Randy played before most of us were twinkles in our daddy’s eyes, but Gradishar was a defensive force for the Buckeyes during the early 70s. (Unfortunately he went on to play in the NFL for the loathsome Denver Broncos, but it was during the pre-Elway years, so we won’t hold that against him.)

Woody Hayes said he was the, “best linebacker he ever coached.” Quite the compliment. The Ohio State end-of-season award for most outstanding linebacker is known as the Randy Gradishar Award.
