A CONCURRENT RESOLUTION
To urge the selection committee of the Professional Football Hall of Fame to choose Dick Schafrath for induction into the Professional Football Hall of Fame.


BE IT RESOLVED BY THE SENATE OF THE STATE OF OHIO
(THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES CONCURRING):


       WHEREAS, The members of the 129th General Assembly of the State of Ohio are pleased to support the induction of Dick Schafrath into the Professional Football Hall of Fame; and

       WHEREAS, Dick Schafrath is, indeed, deserving of induction into the Professional Football Hall of Fame for it would be a fitting tribute to his numerous accomplishments in the sport of football. He was an offensive lineman with the Cleveland Browns for 13 seasons from 1959 to 1971, and, throughout that time, the team never had a losing season, compiling a record of 59-23-2 and winning five conference or division titles and a national championship. During his career, Dick Schafrath blocked for such Hall of Fame running backs as Jim Brown, Bobby Mitchell, and LeRoy Kelly, and he was named a National Football League All-Pro for six consecutive years; and

       WHEREAS, Dick Schafrath is a remarkable individual because he successfully combined talent and competitive spirit with the highest ideals of good sportsmanship to become a truly exceptional athlete. He is certainly deserving of high praise; and

       WHEREAS, Dick Schafrath's record of personal and professional achievement stands as a hallmark worthy of emulation, and he has inspired countless individuals to excel in numerous areas of endeavor. With or without national acclaim, his accomplishments and leadership are a justifiable source of pride not only for him, but also for his family, his community, and the Cleveland Browns; now therefore be it

       RESOLVED, That we, the members of the 129th General Assembly of the State of Ohio, in adopting this resolution, salute Dick Schafrath and encourage the selection committee of the Professional Football Hall of Fame to acknowledge his efforts by inducting him; and be it further

       RESOLVED, That the Clerk of the Senate transmit duly authenticated copies of this resolution to Dick Schafrath, the selection committee of the Professional Football Hall of Fame, and the news media of Ohio.
