RIP Jim Houston

Another Massillon great has passed away. Massillon Tiger, Ohio State Buckeye, Cleveland Brown. One of only a handful to win championships at high school, college and professional level. RIP Jim Houston.

A really nice man. Was blessed to sit at the bar with him and some other greats at an NFL Columbus chapter dinner. He was a class act.

I agree with you except that he never won a title in high school. Still a great guy. Loved watching him with the Browns.

Only you would question Jim Houston accomplishments in regards to his championships in high school. Your disdain for Massillon is obvious even at this time. That’s pathetic.

I was merely correcting a factual error made by the original poster. He was awarded a state title along with his teammates, but he and teammates never won one.

Great football player and a great guy. Saw him play at all 3 levels. Came to our town to speak and I was fortunate to be his host.

Our lives are gone in the blink of an eye. Jim will be with Christ Jesus.

Again, this really isn't about Jim Houston, is about your obsession about Massillon. However, you can't change the fact those titles were earned and are legitimate.

Legitimate, as in recognized by OHSAA as official. No matter what you think, they are official, which makes them legitimate, get over it. R.I.P. Jim Houston, legitimate champion at every official level of football.

Suppose he never won one at Ohio State either. Of all the places to troll...how pathetic.

By every account Jim was a great guy. I knew his brother Walt well (played for Redskins). One of the companies he owned made corrugated packaging. He cold-called me once in the Cleveland area. Luckily I let him in, he walked into my office, saw my little Tigers banner, introduced himself, and needless to say got the business, lol. Friends for many years after that. Many great stories.

In addition to Walt and Lin who also played for the Browns, there was a 4th Houston, Jack, also 1st team All-Ohio at Massillon, who tragically passed away shortly after. Walt always said he was better than ALL of them. What a great family.
