A city of around 30,000 people in northeast Ohio, just west of Canton. Crazy high school football city. Baby boys born in Massillon are given small footballs in the hospital. In fact, Massillon's high school football team has the second winningest program in the nation behind Valdosta, Georgia. A couple of Massillon alumni include Paul Brown and former NFL linebacker Chris Spielman. The Massillon Tigers have a huge, nationally known rivalry with the next door Canton McKinley Bulldogs. This was the topic of the film Go Tigers!...Bobby Knight was also born in Massillon.
We don't care about school here in Massillon, just football. We also don't seem to mind the horrid stench of human waste drifting over from the landfill or sewage plant or whatever it is into the parking lot of the Wal-Mart either.
