Tom Goosby

Offensive guards usually don't get much recognition, but there are few football fans of Baldwin-Wallace College who don't remember Goosby. A 4-year letterman, Goosby was a stalwart on the 1961 team - the only B-W squad to finish with a perfect record. He was an NAIA All-American and the Ohio Conference's outstanding lineman in 1962. Goosby, who is now manager of Akron U's JAR Arena, is one of only four Baldwin-Wallace alumni to play in the National Football League. He was with the Cleveland Browns from 1963-65 and was a starter for the Washington Redskins in 1966. His career was shortened by two knee injuries. He retired after playing in the Canadian Football League in 1967. He is a member of the Baldwin-Wallace Hall of Fame.
