Ned Oldham

He started as a quarterback at Cuyahoga Falls High, where Ned starred three years, but switched to halfback at the US Naval Academy at Annapolis. At Navy he made gridiron history - setting a career rushing average of 5.2 yards a carry, scoring 140 points - second highest at the time and he stood third in total rushing. Probably his most memorable game came in 1957. With 100,000 fans looking on, Oldham scored two touchdowns and kicked both extra points as Navy beat Army, 14-0.
