COLUMBUS — Centerville High School graduate and former Ohio State Buckeyes quarterback Kirk Herbstreit will be featured in a new exhibit at the Ohio History Connection in Columbus.
The “Ohio — Champion of Sports” exhibition opens March 16 and will remain open for 19 months. According to a press release, the exhibition “features more than 70 stories and 35 oral histories covering more than 25 sports ranging from baseball, football and basketball to roller derby, skateboarding and e-gaming. The exhibit showcases the Ohio athletes, coaches, owners and fans at the center of the action.”
Visitors can read about Herbstreit’s accomplishments in the “Identity” section, which focuses on Ohio athletes on and off the field and how they have impacted the perception of Ohio. The Massillon-McKinley football rivalry and the Dawg Pound at Cleveland Browns stadium are also featured in this section.
“Ohio–Champion of Sports is a next generation exhibit for the Ohio History Connection that connects visitors to our state’s national sports history in new and modern ways,” said Burt Logan, Ohio History Connection executive director in a press release. “It’s unlike anything we’ve ever done.”
