George Amlin

2013 WSHF inductee



            George Amlin, the valedictorian of the Mohawk High School class of 1963, won 14 letters from 1959-63 and went on to play football at Ohio State University.

            At Mohawk, he won four letters each in track and field and basketball and three letters in both basketball and baseball.

            Amlin was the 1963 class A state high jump champion, clearing 6-2, and competed in the 100-yard dash finals, finishing in 10.2 seconds, which stood as a Mohawk record for many years. He won regional championships as a senior in the high jump, 100-yard dash, 220-yard dash and 440-yard dash and was the state high jump runner-up as a junior.

            In basketball, Amlin was a guard and was the first of two players in school history to score more than 1,000 points in a career, while in baseball, he was the top pitcher on the Warriors’ regional-qualifying baseball team in 1963. He was part of the Tiffin Babe Ruth state championship team in 1960.

            At Ohio State, Amlin was a three-year football participant as a defensive back and special teams player, earning a scholarship for his final two seasons. Amlin earned a letter his final year and graduated in 1968 cum laude with a degree in mechanical engineering.

            Amlin and his wife, Patsy, have three children with their first grandchild finally arriving last year and another due this year. He worked at DuPont for 38 years, relocating 10 times, including seven years in Tokyo and Singapore.
