Cornelius Greene accepted a football scholarship from Ohio State University to play under head coach Woody Hayes. As a sophomore, he was named the starter at quarterback over Greg Hare. He was the first African American quarterback to start at Ohio State. He was named Big 10 Conference MVP for the 1975 season, when his teammate Archie Griffin became the first two-time Heisman Trophy winner. Greene compiled a 31-2-1 record in the regular season, played in 4 Rose Bowls (3 as the starting quarterback), won the 1974 Rose Bowl against USC, won three Big Ten Championships and led the team to an undefeated season in 1973. In 1998, he was inducted into the Ohio State Athletics Hall of Fame. Cornelius Greene has hand autographed this Ohio State Buckeyes 8x10 Photo with #7 1975 OSU and Big Ten MVP inscriptions.
