It doesn't surprise as many people as it used to that a Schembechler calls Columbus home. Glenn "Shemy" Schembechler, son of the late University of Michigan football coach Bo Schembechler, has lived in Columbus for 15 years, settling here to be close to his wife Megan's family. Following a 16-year career scouting and consulting for four NFL teams, Schembechler now runs GES Advisory Company, a firm that works with high school football players who want to play at the college level and their families.

In honor of "Rivalry Week," and to mark 10 years since the passing of his father on the day before "The Game," here are a few things Shemy loves.

Spending time with my family

Things like taking my son to school sound very simple, but when you consider where I came from, spending nine months out of the year on the road [scouting] in the NFL, I enjoy these simple pleasures. So much of what I am as a parent is the opportunity to be around my son and teach him how to grow up and what it means to be a good kid. You can't minimize that.

The Rivalry

I always root for Ohio State except for one [game] - that's kind of what allows me to live in peace down here. The rivalry and the legacy that Woody and my dad had allows me to integrate the Schembechler name here in Columbus, and I always appreciate that. To be embraced by the Ohio State faithful speaks to what the rivalry is all about.

Roosters

It doesn't necessarily fit into my dietary goals, but that's our go-to place. The last three birthdays for me, my wife and my son, that's where we go. We go to the one up on Henderson Road. I rotate my order but my staple is the wings.

Friday night football

With my company, I have the opportunity to go to a high school football game pretty much every Friday night. What a joy. That is really the authenticity of the game. It's been so great for me to go back into that environment and see that innate love and passion for football. I go to identify good players and in many cases to see kids I'm working with [at GES].

Lifelong friends

I've been fortunate to have a group of about 10 friends from elementary school and high school that I still speak with on a regular basis. These are people now all over the country who I grew up with at Ann Arbor Huron High School. I'm going to bring my mom to light here. She had a friend of hers that she thought of as a sister, and they were friends for 50-60 years. To see them together, they truly had a sisterhood about them. And that was a great lesson for me.
