I went to a small rural high school in northern Ohio (Oak Harbor). Our only athletic claim to fame is OSU wrestler JD Bergman, a three time All-American. We usually had good football teams, but that's not hard in divisions 3 & 4.
I had some notable names. Anthony Smith safety who went to Syracuse. Most notable for calling out Tom Brady and the patriots when he played for Pittsburgh. Shaun Lane, who we should all remember, he was the corner who got partially parlayzed in the Texas BCS bowl game, on the kick off. And next is Larry Scott, RB, who we all know about in 2015.
That wasn't the question!
We were the Riverside Beavers. Aside from our poor win-loss record, imagine the insults we encountered in the stands. Sadly, we produced no college talent I'm aware of.

I went to Willoughby South, and played you guys in basketball. We always got a kick out of hearing your
cheerleaders chant " we are the beavers". If I remember correctly, they were very good looking.

No Sir...I wasn't born until 72....lol...but I did forget a few...I thought I put Clarett...wrong post...but he was one of the three best players that I even seen live play there....

3. Clayton Waite
4. J. Simpson
5. T. Powell
Honorable Mention : Marco Miller (R.I.P. Marky.), Biddy (one year), The Richardson brothers ( Rosell/ Jamaine), Super Mario, K. Richardson, J. Perez.....alot of others...some of them I don't remember names....a great young linebacker that I seen once...I think he palyed around 98....I only been to about four games since I graduated in 91-92 (Championship Season)...that team was loaded...I didn't even list Korey, Leshaun Daniels, and Astron was good too. Ensign / and Chauncey played great QB for that championship team too. I apologize, a little caught up in emotions reminiscing about players
Yeah Austintown, but I didn't leave him out on purpose...you had Doug Datish from Howland too. And Deveon's brother Lance who went to Wisconsin...but I think he was kicked off the team or left due to personal reasons.
I know...but I wanted to weigh in....so to answer the question. No my school was not sorry. LOL
Jed Hill TE '04 PSU (Now a famous underwear model)
Rick McFadden QB '00 tOSU (Transferred to Akron to play SF and is an assistant hoops coach there now)
Walter Reyes RB '00 Cuse (Spent a training camp with the Titans before being cut)
John Gerek TE early 90's PSU (Bounced around positions before settling in at Guard where he played several seasons in the NFL)
Gary Zetts QB late 60's tOSU (Sat behind Red Kern and when Woody asked him to play safety he transferred to VT only to sit behind long time pro Don Strock)
That's all I can think of from Struthers. We had some good teams in the 70s 80s and 90s but no other name sticks out as far as going anywhere big.
