Birthplace: Shelby, Ohio
High School: Shelby (1957)

Larry Siegfried, a 6-foot-3, 190-pound guard from Shelby High School, was a three-year starter at Ohio State University and a key member of the Buckeyes’ 1960 national championship team, which produced five NBA players. Voted OSU’s most valuable player as a sophomore, Siegfried accepted a lesser scoring role when Jerry Lucas, John Havlicek and Mel Nowell became eligible in the class behind him. Nevertheless, he was picked as an All-American in 1961 when the Buckeyes were upset by Cincinnati in the NCAA title game. Spurning a professional offer from the Cincinnati Royals, he played a year with the Cleveland Pipers of the ABA. He was cut by the St. Louis Hawks in 1963 but received a tryout with the Boston Celtics and earned five championship rings in a nine-year career. Larry Siegfried died on October 14, 2010 at the age of 71 in Cleveland.
