COLUMBUS, Ohio The Alumni Association is asking Ohio State alumni to select the greatest players in Buckeye football history.

Voting opened Monday for the Ohio State Alumni Magazine 100th Anniversary All-Alumni Team. Balloting will remain open until Jan. 31, 2009, and the team will be unveiled in the July/August 2009 edition of OSAM.

“We’re excited to offer our graduates a chance to select an all-alumni team,” said Archie Griffin, president and CEO of the Alumni Association. “Ohio State has a storied football history and this is a wonderful way to recognize the players and coaches who have built our tradition.”

Alumni will select 11 offensive and defensive starters as well as a coach, kicker, and punter. The ballot was assembled by Ohio State football historian Jack Park, a Life Member of the Alumni Association.
