Photo Gallery: Ohio's 'Tremendous 26'

In conjunction with the Ohio High School Football Coaches Association, the Ohio High School Football Guide honors a 'Tremendous 26' all-star team on the cover of their publication. As invited guests to the photo shoot on Sunday, the Bucknuts crew was on hand to take photograhs and conduct interviews at Ohio Stadium first and then over at a luncheon at the Buckeye Hall Of Fame Cafe. This year 34 players were named to the unit. Here's how some of the day looked in pictures.

Some version of this photo will appear on the cover of Ohio High School Football Guide for this upcoming season.



These two future Buckeyes, Chris Wells and Ross Homan, can only dream of their number at Ohio State being retired some day like the six that are already retired above them in the picture.



Homan and Wells got Ohio State's recruiting class of 2006 off to an excellent start.
