22.  Les Horvath was Ohio State’s first Heisman Trophy winner, taking home the coveted award in 1944 after leading the Big 10 in rushing and total offense.  Horvath was a jack of all trades, playing quarterback, halfback and safety for the Buckeyes.  In addition to a Big 10 championship in 1944, he helped lead the Buckeyes to the school’s first national championship in 1942.  Horvath’s number 22 was retired by the Buckeyes in 2001.  Being the first Heisman Trophy winner at a school known for having more Heisman Trophies than any other.  Hopefully the Buckeyes can add another to that list soon.
