Joe Pa Comes to Cleveland

On May 11, 1978 Cleveland's Rotary Club hosted 'Heisman Day' to formally recognize Heisman's legacy and connection to Cleveland by dedicating the historical marker of Heisman's birth site in Ohio City. Joe Paterno, the winningest active head coach in college football at the time, was the guest speaker. The late Penn State coach noted, "It's a proud, historic moment, and Cleveland should flaunt it." Paterno is seated in the center of the photo.
