COSHOCTON – The Johnson-Humrickhouse Museum and Coshocton’s Downtowner Plaza are pleased to announce the winner of The Coshocton Sports Legend poll.

Nominations for the honor were collected over several weeks and then reduced to five names for the ballot. A seven-year residence in Coshocton County was the only requirement for nominees. Nearly 200 votes were cast and the winner is Bob Brenly, a former baseball player, coach and manager in Major League Baseball and currently a color commentator for Diamondbacks broadcasts.

Brian Olinger (college, US team and professional cross country runner) came in second. Other candidates—in order of votes received—included Kari Daugherty Pickens (college basketball player), Troy Berry (baseball player and coach for the University of Findlay) and Caroline Mast Daugherty (college basketball player and River View High School coach). The winner will be recognized in the museum’s special exhibit, Unforgettable Sports Legends.

The Johnson-Humrickhouse Museum is open daily from noon to 5 p.m. May through October. For information, contact JHM at 622-8710, e-mail [email protected] or visit www.jhmuseum.org.
