Bob Ferguson

Troy (OH)

Bob Ferguson is one of the greatest players to grace Troy Memorial Stadium. For 40 years, he owned nearly every rushing record in school history. From Ferguson’s sophomore year to graduation, the Trojans went 27-0, outscoring opponents 32-9. After graduation, Bob went on to have an outstanding career under Coach Woody Hayes at The Ohio State University. He was a two-time All-American and All Big Ten Selection in 1960 and 1961. In ’61, he won the Maxwell Award and finished second in the Heisman Trophy voting. A series of injuries cut his NFL career short, with diabetes eventually taking his sight and his legs. Mr. Ferguson passed away in December 2004. His son, Ron, accepted the award.
