Robert E. Lewis

One of the finest athletes in the history of track at Ohio State University in the late 1930s, he co-captained the team in 1939 winning the Big Ten Championship in the 220-yard dash in both 1938 and '39. Back in the day when sub 10-second dashes were rare, Lewis won the 100 during the 1939 Big Ten meet with a time of 9.4, and then later anchored the Ohio State mile relay team to the championship in the Drake Relays in record-breaking time.
