Jim Stillwagon was a starter three years for Ohio State, and his team won the Big Ten title each of those years.

Stillwagon was a consensus All-America choice in 1969 and a unanimous All-America in 1970. Also in 1970, he was Ohio State co-captain, Most Valuable Player on his team, and winner of the Outland and Lombardi Trophies as the nation's best lineman. Stillwagon, 6-0, a muscular 220 pounds, played middle guard with an occasional stint at linebacker. In 1970, he made 99 tackles in 10 games. He followed his college career with six years in the Canadian League and was Defensive Player of the Year in 1972. "Wagon," as he was called by teammates, opened a sports memorabilia business in Columbus, Ohio; his specialty was a line of T-shirts, caps, and posters glorifying his old coach, Woody Hayes.
