Cleveland, OH - Youngstown legend Bo Pelini announced today that he was endorsing Mike Gibbons for U.S. Senate. Pelini is currently the head football coach at Youngstown State. He is endorsing in his personal capacity.
"I know Mike will fight for Youngstown and Ohio in the U.S. Senate," Pelini said. "Mike comes from a blue collar family and worked hard for everything he's ever gotten. He has Youngstown values that are desperately needed in our nation's capital. I'm proud to endorse him."
Before coaching Youngstown State, Pelini was raised in Youngstown where he was a high school standout before becoming a star at Ohio State, including being named a captain his senior year. Pelini rose through the coaching ranks and was a part of both Super Bowl winning teams and teams that won the college football national championship.
"I'm grateful for Bo's support," Gibbons said. "Bo is great coach who knows how to win. Our campaign is ready to win on May 8 and in November."
