    ARCHIE GRIFFIN (1972-75)
    Griffin isn’t only the greatest running back in Ohio State history, he’s the most decorated individual player in college football history.

    By rushing for 1,695 yards in 1974 and 1,450 yards in 1975, Griffin became the first player ever to win the Heisman Trophy twice. Forty-seven seasons later, Griffin is still the only player ever win the Heisman Trophy twice.

    Griffin held the NCAA record for all-time rushing yards at the end of his Ohio State career, rushing for 5,589 yards – 1,130 yards more than any other Buckeye ever has rushed for – over the course of his four years as a Buckeye. He’s also Ohio State’s career leader in rushing yards per game (121.5) with a whopping 34 career 100-yard rushing games, 12 more than any other Buckeye all-time. Griffin still holds the NCAA record for most consecutive 100-yard games with 31 in a row from 1973-75.

    Also one of just eight Ohio State players to be a three-time first-team All-American, Griffin remains the gold standard for Buckeye greatness more than four-and-a-half decades after his last carry (not including his touchdown in this year’s spring game) in scarlet and gray.
