2022 Ross County Winner
2022 Ross County Winner featured familiar local sites and iconic landmarks to create the perfect hometown shirt. The winner used the phrase "A city so nice...it was the capital twice", which is a nod to the fact that Chillicothe was in fact the first and third capital of Ohio. A job well done!
2023 Ross County Winner
2023 Ross County Winner featured a small town, big heart theme with some of the most famous local landmarks on the back of the shirt. A favorite for sure and great use of imagery and local themes.
