Newcomerstown in Tuscarawas County, Ohio — The American Midwest (Great Lakes)
Wayne Woodrow "Woody" Hayes
February 14, 1913 — March 12, 1987
A history fanatic and staunch patriot, Hayes enlisted in the U.S. Navy in 1941, eventually earning the rank of Lieutenant Commander during his service in World War II. Upon his return to the States, Woody took over as the head coach at his alma mater, finishing his three-year tenure on an 18-game winning streak that saw his teams capture back-to-back Ohio Athletic Conference titles.
After turning Miami University around in two seasons, Ohio State came calling and Hayes answered. Woody guided the Buckeyes to five national championships and 13 Big Ten crowns, producing three Heisman Trophy winners and 56 first-team All-Americans on the way to 205 wins from 1951-1978. He was inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame in 1983.

As a coach, Hayes emphasized a strong defense, however he is most remembered for his philosophy on offense. Because of Hayes's emphasis on running the ball, most people described his offense as "three yards and a cloud of dust." When asked why he opposed throwing the ball, Hayes once responded, "There are three things that can happen when you throw a pass, and two of them are bad."(Submitted on November 26, 2022, by Cosmos Mariner of Cape Canaveral, Florida.)
Hayes's career at The Ohio State University ended in 1978. This year the Buckeyes were playing Clemson University in the Gator Bowl. As the game was drawing to a conclusion, Hayes punched a player from Clemson after the playerintercepted a pass, securing the victory for Clemson. Because of Hayes's action, Ohio State terminated him.
