BOARDMAN, Ohio (WKBN) – There is more going on at Ohio Stadium on a football Saturday than you might think, says Trevor Zahara.
Zahara has been an usher at The Ohio State Buckeyes’ Ohio Stadium for 18 years. He wrote a book called, “Confessions of an OSU Usher — Inside Stories of the Most Famous Stadium in the World.”
Zahara spoke Thursday night at the Boardman Public Library about his book, and he told a few of his interesting stories. One such story was of a heavy-set usher with a full white beard that helped out former coach Earl Bruce.
“Every year, the same usher played Santa Claus for the team, and all the coach kids and the team. Every year, he had the same usher came and played Santa Claus,” he said.
The stories in Zahara’s book are not just his own. He interviewed other ushers to get some of the stories as well.
