1 comment


In Cleveland, high school football's Holy War has always been St. Ignatius vs. St. Ed's; but the two most storied coaches in the region are from St. Ignatius and Glenville: Chuck Kyle and Tedd Ginn Sr.

They'll join Mike Hargrove, diminutive basketball standout Earl Boykins and a squash champion named Pat Morin (along with a couple others) in this year's induction class to the Greater Cleveland Sports Hall of Fame.

Kyle has been the Iggy coach since 1983 and has won an unthinkable 10 Division 1 state championships. His overall record is 301-69-1.

Since 1997 at Glenville, Ginn has has taken his Tarblooders to 11 playoff appearances and sent his son Ted Ginn Jr. to Ohio State and the NFL. He's had success off the field as well. In 2007, he started the Ginn Academy for Young Men.
