My question is does anyone know of another High school who has two guys in the HOF?
Not that I can tell, but Northeast Ohio has a couple cities that have come close to producing two Hall of Famers from the same school. Likewise, a few hall of famers came from rival schools. Dante Lavelli went to Hudson, archrival to neighboring Stow, which produced Larry Csonka. Marion Motley, who went to Canton McKinley, played for Paul Brown, an alumnus of McKinley's famous archrival Massillon Washington. Stark County alone has five Hall of Famers, and a sixth, Jim Thorpe, played professional football there for the Canton Bulldogs. The northeastern portion of Ohio, by itself, is pretty saturated with hall of famers.
Hall of Famers who played for High Schools in Northeast Ohio:
Paul Brown - Massillon (OH)
Len Dawson - Alliance (OH)
Dan Dierdorf - Glenwood (Canton, OH)
Marion Motley - McKinley (Canton, OH)
Alan Page - Central Catholic (Canton, OH)
Cliff Battles – Kenmore (Akron, OH)
Dante Lavelli - Hudson (OH)
Larry Csonka - Stow (OH)
Benny Friedman - East Tech (Cleveland, OH); Glenville (Cleveland, OH)
Tom Mack - Cleveland Heights (OH)
Mike Michalske - West Tech (Cleveland, OH)
Chuck Noll - Benedictine (Cleveland, OH)
Don Shula - Harvey (Painesville, OH) – Lake County
Paul Warfield - Warren G. Harding (Warren, OH) – Trumbull County
Wilbur (Pete) Henry - Mansfield (OH) – Richland County
Clarke Hinkle - Toronto (OH) – Jefferson County
Jack Lambert - Mantua (OH) – Portage County
Probably More Southeast than Northeast
Lou Groza - Martins Ferry (OH) – Belmont County
