    I'm all over that. Still my favorite Buckeye, along with Winfield, of all time.

    Former OSU coach John Cooper picks his best of the best

    Q. Hardest-working player you ever coached?

    A. “Probably Eddie George. I’d put him up real high. Eddie didn’t start here until his junior year. As a freshman, he fumbled twice (inside the 5-yard line) against Illinois. He wouldn’t have played for Woody Hayes if he had done that, although somebody told me Jim Otis once fumbled three times in a game. But Eddie never got down on himself and just kept working, working, working. And by his senior year, against basically the same Illinois team, he rushed for (a school-record) 314 yards. That’s a pretty good example of how good he got and how hard he worked to get there.”

    From football to Broadway, Eddie George shares the secrets of his success with students

    George puts on a master class for local drama program participants

    Eddie George won a Heisman Trophy for the Buckeyes, he went to the Super Bowl with the Tennessee Titans and he built his own business empire. Next month he’s coming back to Columbus in a new role: Broadway star.

    George, a 2001 graduate of The Ohio State University, was at the Ohio Theater Monday morning to talk about his turn as Billy Flynn in the musical “Chicago” and to speak to students from a recently established drama program at South High School. Students in the program come from area middle and high schools.

    George, who decided to tackle acting after retiring from the NFL in 2004, told the students that he approaches performing on the stage the same way he approached football.

    “What are you doing that your competition isn’t doing? How are you going to make yourself different than the other artists out there?” George asked.

    A few of the students performed monologues for George. Faith Bean, a student from Lakeview Junior High School, performed a passage from “MacBeth.”

    “I was nervous and excited and a bunch of different emotions that I just bottled up,” she said. “But then I ended up being cool and calm.”

    Middle school student Joel Moren shared a similar story.

    “Standing in front of people who I didn’t know and in front of someone who is famous and who’s going to work in an actual production was scary,” Moren said. “But it was it was amazing that I made him laugh. I was so happy I made him laugh.”

    ORD_Buckeye Wrong glass, Sir.

    Eddie George is everything a Buckeye should be. Graduated with a real degree (landscape architecture), then an MBA from Northwestern. I know and accept that most of the foosball players are here for a shot at the NFL, but George proves that it is possible to do that while being a real student.

    Very solid firm. Eddie made excellent use of his landscape architecture degree from The Ohio State University.
