The Knights had a Buckeye in their midst on the morning of Jan. 5. Jim Tressel, national college football icon and head coach at the Ohio State University, visited the Castle only days after his team beat the Oregon Ducks in the Rose Bowl by a score of 26-17.
While at Hoban, Tressel had the opportunity to catch up with an old friend: history teacher and Hoban football’s head coach, Ralph Orsini. Although he only stayed for roughly an hour, Tressel spoke with Orsini, athletic director Sean Quinn and a host of students and teachers alike who wanted nothing more than to simply say, “Congrats on that Rose Bowl victory, Coach Tressel!” Fortunately, Coach Tressel was humble enough to give some of his time to Hoban’s own media, as the Visor got to know a little bit more about the man with the sweater vest.
