The Ginn Way in Cleveland

by Jeff Fisher
High School Football America

Ted Ginn, Sr. is a man that is know for doing great things on the football field as the head football coach at Cleveland's Glenville High School.

Ginn's son, Ted Jr., plays for the Miami Dolphins and he coached Heisman Trophy winner Troy Smith in high school. Last season, the Tarblooders played in their first-ever Ohio state championship game, losing to Hilliard Davidson 16-15 in the Division I title game.

Today, I found a great story that CBS News ran on Ginn in December. Ginn is helping at-risk youth in the city at his brand new school called the Ginn Academy. While Ginn has a lot of victories since taking over at at Glenville in 1997, his biggest wins may be coming in the classrooms with the children at Ginn Academy.
