Football Legend's Cleveland Birthplace To Be Honored

(Cleveland) - Cleveland City Council is planning to make the birthplace of football legend John Heisman a local historical landmark.

The legendary coach was born at 3928 Bridge Avenue on the near west side. Council has before it an ordinance that would designate Heisman's birthplace as a Cleveland Landmark. The ordinance calls for protection of this historic landmark.

The ordinance goes before Council's Development, Planning and Sustainability Committee on Tuesday.

Heisman, born in 1969, began his coaching career at Oberlin College and Buchtel College (now the University of Akron) before heading on to coach future powerhouses Auburn, Clemson, and Georgia Tech.
