Career Highlights:
In 1935, Maggied's first year on Ohio's football squad, the Buckeyes finished 7-1-0 and won their first Big Ten championship in 14 years. That year, the Buckeyes defeated Michigan, 38-0, in the final game of the season. That season finale launched the now famous season-ending rivalry. Since then, Ohio State has ended their regular season schedule with a game against the Wolverines every year except one.

Also in 1935, Ohio State and Notre Dame played what was hailed as one of the greatest college games ever played. The Buckeyes held a 13-0 lead entering the fourth quarter, but Notre Dame scored three times in the final quarter -- twice in the last two minutes -- for an 18-13 win.

In 1936, the Buckeyes finished with a record of 5-3-0 and finished in a tie for second in the Big Ten. That year, the Ohio State Marching Band performed “Script Ohio” for the first time. After losing its Big Ten opener to Northwestern, 14-13, Ohio State steamrolled through its remaining conference schedule with four shutouts in four games -- they outscored their opponents 160-27 that year.

In 1937, Maggied was named AP All-Western Conference honorable mention as Ohio State finished 6-2-0 (5-1-0 in conference) and was ranked No. 13 in the country. The Buckeyes continued their domination of Michigan, defeating the Wolverines 21-0 -- it marked the third-consecutive season the Buckeyes held Michigan scoreless.
