John Rabb

There’s no telling how far Johnny Rabb might have gone in college football on two sound legs. They carried him to prep fame and halfway to greatness on a national level. His most rewarding high school football season came in 1932 when Akron North tied for the City Series championship. While at North, he broke the state discuss record in 1933 and 1934 and was the Ohio shot put king in 1934. Playing fullback at Ohio State, Rabb had a fine sophomore year and an even better junior season until his left knee went bad.
