ST. MARYS — Even 37 years after Archie Griffin last toted the football for the Ohio State Buckeyes, a room in this state goes wild when the only two-time Heisman Trophy winner enters it.
Griffin’s quick wit, genial smile, and zest for football were on full display in a town that loves the sport as much as he does — St. Marys — on Thursday night.

50 Years Ago This Week – 1962
This week in 1962, the St. Marys Lakers finally hung a loss on the Coldwater Cubs in men’s baseball action, when they edged them 7-6 in a non-league encounter in Coldwater.
Coldwater had beaten the Lakers in their three straight previous meetings through the summer of 1962. Despite missing several of their offensive cogs, the Lakers managed 15 hits in the victory, led by Dick Hollman and Fred Dray, who knocked three base hits apiece.
