Heisman Club Announces 2012 Hall of Fame Class 

Oberlin, Ohio – Oberlin College’s John W. Heisman Club officially announced its 2012 hall of fame induction class on Friday afternoon. Four individuals along with the entire 1921 football team will officially be enshrined into the hall this fall during Homecoming Weekend September 21-23.

1921 Football Team
The 1921 football is best remembered for being the last team from the state of Ohio to beat The Ohio State University, but they were much more than that. Just one of five teams in school history to go undefeated - finishing 7-0-1 - this Yeomen squad allowed just 25 points all season long and shutout four opponents along the way.
