Place would be around 70 or 71. He was a Massillon St. Joseph product who graduated from Central in '65. Place traveled the Central-UD pipeline that was created in the '60s by former Central HCs McVay and Eaglowski and went on to have a fine career in SW Ohio. Incidentally, that class of '65 produced 2 state championship football coaches with Place guiding Chaminade-Julienne to the DII title in '02 and Jack Rose leading St. Thomas Aquinas to the DIV title in '84.
