What sports did you play while at Oberlin?

I lettered in Football & Baseball all four years and played Basketball for 2 years.

Did you play any sports in college after you graduated?
I played football for four years at Oberlin College and I was informed that I will be inducted into their Heisman Club Athletics Hall of Fame this Fall. Go Yeoman!!

What was your favorite class and or teacher while at Oberlin?
My favorite class at OHS would be a toss up between PE/Gym nad any class Mrs. Tolbert-Brown taught. My favorite teachers  were Kurt Russell, Mrs. TB & Rudd Crawford.
What is your favorite sports memory from Oberlin?
Hard to name a single favorite sports moment, but I remember getting our first win of the season in football our Senior year. We had endured some long and winless seasons leading up to that win, so it felt good to start our Senior year off with one. Also, a great way to start the “Superfriends” Senior Year!
If you could give any advice to current high school students what would you tell them?
The best advice I can give current students would be to take care of business in the classroom. It’s not a necessity for every student to go to college to succeed, but give yourself the opportunity to if that’s a route you’ll possibly go. Also, travel. See the World. Life has a lot to offer. Live it!
