Date of Birth

Ohio State University (1917-1920)


For two years Ohio State's Pete Stinchcomb teamed with Chic Harley as a great backfield duo. After Harley graduated, Stinchcomb would carry OSU to the first of many Rose Bowl appearances. A lightweight at 165 pounds, Stinchcomb was a quick and shifty halfback as he made his way through enemy defenses. Stinchcomb led Ohio State through a perfect seven-game regular season as a senior in 1920. The Buckeyes' success drew the 1921 Rose Bowl game. Gaylord Stinchcomb's nickname was "Pete"; he played at Ohio State 1917, 1919, 1920, gaining All-America notices as a third-teamer in 1919 and a consensus pick in 1920. He was on the Ohio State basketball and track teams and was intercollegiate long jump champion in 1921. He played with five teams in the National Football League 1921-26, then went into the construction business in Findlay, Ohio.
