    Member Biography
    A star fullback and team captain at Pana High School in Illinois, Warren Amling continued his winning ways while attending the Ohio State University. The three-year letter- winner became the Buckeyes' captain in 1946 and was selected as a first team All-America at two different positions, as a guard in 1945 and then again at tackle in 1946. On offense, the 5'11", 197-pound Amling was called "an excellent technician," because he matched the best blocking techniques against whatever defense was used. As a defensive guard, his stamina and body balance made him extremely difficult to block. His senior year ,Amling was asked by Coach Paul Bixler to switch to tackle because the team needed help at that position. Surprising quickness and intelligence overcame size and he again was a standout. Amling also excelled on Buckeye basketball teams in 1945, 1946, and 1947. He played in three NCAA tournaments. After earning a bachelor of science degree, he graduated with honors from Ohio State's Veterinary Medicine School. Dr. Amling practiced most of his career in London, Ohio serving in medical and management positions with the John Sawyer Company and the Ohio Feed Lot. ​
