In 1869, John Heisman was born on this site, on the near west side of Cleveland, on Bridge Avenue in the Ohio City neighborhood. Heisman was an important innovator of many aspects of modern day college football, and is the namesake of the Heisman Trophy, the annual award given to the best college football player in America. John Heisman also coached at Buchtel College, which eventually became the University of Akron, my college alma mater.

Congratulations to this years Heisman Trophy winner, Jameis Winston, quarterback from the #1 ranked Florida State Seminoles football team.
