Hall of Fame
A gifted athlete, who helped Columbus attain the mythical title of “College Football Capital of the World,” Chic Harley’s sports heroics at Ohio State University are legendary. Known best for his performances on the football field, Harley also was outstanding at basketball, track and baseball, and was Ohio State’s First four-sport letterman.
He led the Buckeyes to twenty-one straight football victories in the 1916-17 seasons and helped lift a struggling football program to national prominence.
He played only two losing football games in Columbus – his last at East High School and his final game at Ohio State.
Harley later played professional football with the Chicago Bears.
