Glenville’s Ted Ginn Sr. Elected to NFHS National Hall of Fame  
Ohio leads all states with 32 NFHS National High School Hall of Fame members
COLUMBUS, Ohio – Ted Ginn Sr., the longtime football and track and field coach at Cleveland Glenville High School, has been elected to the National Federation of State High School Associations (NFHS) National High School Hall of Fame.
Ginn Sr. and 11 other honorees will be enshrined July 1 as part of the National High School Hall of Fame’s 40th induction class at the NFHS Summer Meeting in Seattle.
Ohio boasts 32 National High School Hall of Fame members, the most of any state since the hall of fame’s founding in 1982. Illinois is represented by 30 members, while California, Iowa and Texas each have 23 honorees. More information on each of Ohio’s 32 inductees is available here: https://www.ohsaa.org/AboutOHSAA/NFHSHallofFame
Ginn Sr. has compiled an overall record of 240-60 since taking over the Tarblooders’ football program in 1997. Glenville—which had never previously qualified for the Ohio High School Athletic Association state playoffs—has been a postseason participant 19 times under Ginn Sr., including a landmark state championship in 2022. The Tarblooders’ 26-6 win over Cincinnati Wyoming in the Division IV state championship game capped a 15-0 season and claimed the first football state title for a school from the Cleveland Metropolitan School District.
Glenville also finished as state runner-up in Division I in 2009 and Division II in 2013, and more than 20 of Ginn Sr.’s former players have played in the National Football League.
The Glenville boys track and field program has won seven OHSAA state championships under Ginn Sr.’s tutelage (2003-07, 2014, 2022). In 2004, the Tarblooders scored 80 team points at the state track and field meet, an all-divisions record that stood until 2019.
Joining Ginn Sr. in the 2023 induction class are: Tamika Catchings (basketball, Illinois/Texas), Carlos Boozer (basketball, Alaska), Clarissa Chun (wrestling, Hawaii), Maranda Brownson (track and field, Oregon), Sue Butz-Stavin (field hockey coach, Pennsylvania), Barbara Campbell (girls volleyball coach, Tennessee), Allan Trimble (football coach, Oklahoma), Sister Lynn Winsor (golf coach, Arizona), Dave Stead (administrator, Minnesota), Dave Carlsrud (administrator, North Dakota) and Bill Webb (performing arts, Minnesota).
