Hall of Fame
As a junior at Ohio State University, Archie Griffin became the 40th winner of the coveted Heisman Trophy, emblematic of the premier college football player in America in 1974. As a senior in 1975, Griffin became the first player ever to receive a second Heisman Trophy.
The Columbus Eastmoor High School graduate became the fourth Ohio State player and first Big Ten athlete since Ohio State’s Howard “Hopalong” Cassady to win the honors. During the 1973-1975 seasons, Griffin ran for one hundred plus yards in thirty-one consecutive games, breaking the NCAA record, while earning All-American honors. After the completion of his illustrious OSU career, Griffin went on to play professional football.
Archie has been recognized for not only for his football achievements, but also for his fellow man, belief in Christ and deep appreciation for close family ties.
