Woody Hayes, 1913-1987

Wayne Woodrow “Woody” Hayes was born February 14, 1913, in Clifton, Ohio, a small town east of Dayton. He is best known for coaching the Buckeye football team to more wins than any other coach in the history of the program, but his life off the field was even more rich and varied than his coaching career. This exhibit will highlight some of the lesser known facets of his life and career and paint a more complete picture of the man he was and the legacy he left.
