Good News: Ted Ginn Sr. Working With Tomorrow's Stars and Leaders

During Saturday night's mega-game pitting #1 Ohio State and #2 Texas, the nation's eyes will be on Buckeye stars and Heisman Trophy candidates QB Troy Smith and WR-KR Ted Ginn Jr. Both players were mentored at Glenville High School near Cleveland, Ohio by Ginn's father, Ted Sr., the head football coach.

Ginn Sr. saw an amazing 21 of his players sign college scholarships last season, 15 of them with Division 1-A , and every single one of them was academically eligible to play this season. As great as that is, Ginn has much bigger plans to reach out and help youngsters on and off the football field.

Ginn told CBS Sportsline writer Dennis Dodd, "It's about putting a kid in position for life."
