Here’s a sports trivia question to stump your friends…Who is the only two-time winner of the Heisman Trophy as the best player in college football? It’s not Bo Jackson, Reggie Bush or Herschel Walker. Actually it’s former Ohio State Buckeye Archie Griffin. As a standout running back at Eastmoor High School in Columbus, Griffin didn’t have to go far to join the Buckeye football program and it didn’t take him long to become a legend in Columbus. In his freshman year in 1972 he set a Buckeye record with 239 rushing yards, and that was just the beginning. In each of his next three years he averaged more than 1,500 yards and helped take Ohio State to four straight Rose Bowls. He won the Heisman for his junior and senior years and then played six years in the NFL with the Cincinnati Bengals. Griffin is now the president of The Ohio State University Alumni Association and still perhaps the most popular figure in the long and storied history of Ohio State football.
Archie Griffin is quite simply a living legend, especially in Ohio. If you want to arrange for an Archie Griffin appearance or Archie Griffin endorsement, contact TSE today and we’ll take the ball and run with it.
**Archie Griffin Speaker**
Archie Griffin speaker appearances occur regularly as a spokesman for the Wendy’s High School Heisman Program and you can bet that Buckeye fans will appear wherever he goes.
**Archie Griffin Appearance**
Of the many records he set in his career, one that might never be broken is the four straight Archie Griffin appearances as a starter in the Rose Bowl. And we might never see another player win two straight Heisman Trophies with so many stars leaving school early for the NFL.
**Archie Griffin Endorsement**
Legendary Ohio State coach Woody Hayes gave the ultimate Archie Griffin endorsement when he famously said, “He’s a better young man than he is a football player, and he’s the best football player I’ve ever seen.” That’s a powerful statement and shows the impact that an Archie Griffin endorsement can make.
