All-Stark football end and basketball center Leroy Raber acquired six prep letters in three sports at Alliance High. At Mount Union, he added baseball to his playing repertoire with football, basketball, and track, lettering three times in each sport. Raber was All-Ohio Conference end two years and made All-Ohio. He also earned All-Ohio forward in basketball while Mount Union was gaining Ohio Conference titles in 1931 and 1932. His coaching jobs finally took Raber to Barberton's head cage position in 1946. In 14 seasons there, his teams won 165 and lost 124.
