Michael Munoz wins trustee seat in Ohio

MAINEVILLE, Ohio -- Former football player Michael Munoz made a good debut as a rookie politician.

The former University of Tennessee All-American led all vote-getters in this week's Hamilton Township trustee elections. At age 24, he was the youngest candidate in the field. He totaled more than twice as many votes as the other trustee elected.

He was a first-team, All-American tackle in 2004 but after a series of surgeries, he was passed over in the NFL draft. He moved to the Maineville area this summer.

He is the son of former Cincinnati Bengals lineman and Hall of Famer Anthony Munoz.
