Pace attended Sandusky High School and played for the Blue Streaks before going on to play collegiately at Ohio State, as only the second true freshman ever to start on opening day for the prestigious Buckeyes football team. He won the Outland Trophy in 1996 for the best college football interior lineman. He was also a two-time winner of the Lombardi Award for the best college lineman or linebacker in 1995 and 1996. He also was a finalist for the 1996 Heisman Trophy and finished 4th in the voting, the highest finish for a lineman (offense or defense) since Hugh Green finished 2nd in 1980.

He was so dominant that the term pancake block - referring to when an offensive lineman knocks a defender on their back - gained popularity due to his play.[1][2][3] In fact, the Ohio State Athletic Department distributed Orlando Pace pancake magnets as a promotion for his Heisman Trophy run. Pace did not allow a sack in his last two years at Ohio State. In one game against Illinois, Pace shut down defensive end Simeon Rice and pancaked him ten times.

Pace is widely recognized as one of the best tackles in the NFL, especially in pass protection. Pace garnered attention in a 2005 game versus the Indianapolis Colts, where he impressively shut down the threat of Colts' defensive end Dwight Freeney, who until that point had beaten even the best left tackles in the league.[4] He has been voted to seven consecutive Pro Bowls dating back to the 1999 season, his third season in the league. Pace's blocking assisted the Rams to a championship win in Super Bowl XXXIV and a championship appearance in Super Bowl XXXVI.

At 6' 7" and 325 pounds, Pace is well-suited for the tackle position. His strength and armspan allow him to be effective in both run- and pass-blocking, but perhaps his greatest asset is his athleticism - Pace's quickness of reflexes and speed are unmatched among NFL offensive linemen. Memorably, in a 2002 game against the Washington Redskins, on an interception return, Pace managed to run down cornerback Champ Bailey, a player noted for his blazing speed. In addition, he laid out Ray Lewis & Peter Boulware on a massive block that sprung Marshall Faulk for a touchdown in 2003.

Bucs: Picking up the pace (915 words)
Today, Orlando Pace is somewhere in between -- between greatness and mediocrity and almost always between the defensive tackle and the quarterback.
Pace had so thoroughly established his credentials at Ohio State, "pancaking" defensive players, that the Buckeyes sports information department promoted his candidacy for national post-season awards by sending his statistics to voters on a cardboard pancake.
Such was Pace's promise in 1997 that the Rams made him the centerpiece of a blockbuster draft-day trade, sending their first-, third-, fourth- and seventh-round picks to the Jets in exchange for the No. 1 overall selection.
