Local Author Robert J. Roman presents his book OHIO STATE FOOTBALL: THE FORGOTTEN DAWN
Thursday May 11, 2017
6:30 PM until 7:30 PM
Author Robert J. Roman draws on extensive archival research to tell the untold story of the early days of football at Ohio's flagship public university. Eleven men played both sides of the ball, quarterbacks were often the smallest man on the team, and coaches were not allowed to communicate with the players during a game. Eager to establish their school as the equal of older, wealthier, and more strictly religious colleges, Ohio State students saw intercollegiate athletics as their path to respectability. Learn about the history of this incredible team. This presentation will be followed by a book signing.
