Most people remember John Cseh (pronounced CHECK) for his exploits in golf. A superb golfer, Cseh won over a 100 trophies in various and sundry golf tournaments in the Greater Akron area over four decades. A 34-year employee of Firestone Tire and Rubber Company, Cseh also represented Firestone in numerous industrial league tournaments that brought more accolades for the diminutive golfer. However, Cseh’s induction into the Summit County Sports Hall of Fame was predicated on his expertise as a long-time sports official.
