Congrats go out to Dick LeBeau

Former Ohio State DB Dick LeBeau was inducted into the NFL Hall of Fame today in Canton Ohio.

Mr. Lebeau who grew up in London, Ohio just outside Columbus played both running back and corner back under famed OSU head Coach Woody Hayes and won a National Championship in 1957. He was Drafted by the Cleveland Browns but was cut as a rookie (I guess the Browns didn’t have good talent visionaries back then either). He went on to play 14 years in the NFL and is in his 36th year as a coach in the NFL. He is most well known for his coaching and as one of the best Defensive gurus ever in football but he was a Hall of Fame player and coach so it is only befitting he enters the hall as a player now and continues to be a Hall of Fame coach for as long as he can.

I can only assume that LeBeau was one of the first Silver Bullets ever at OSU and I am proud to say that for the 50+ years since he played at OSU the team has continued to show him the respect he deserves by playing the best defense in college football year in and year out.

So from all of MotSaG and its readers we wish to say congrats on a most deserving place in the Hall of Fame and thank you for making all of Buckeye Nation proud.
