Pickerington Central will play Cleveland area powerhouse Mentor for the Ohio Division 1 big school state championship this weekend.

Wonder if Cathedral will pull back on the schedule now that Streiff has stepped down?

Wow, they opened up with Detroit Cass Tech and Cathedral. That's some aggressive scheduling.

That Cass Tech - Pickerington Central game is a mini Ohio State-Michigan matchup, right on the Toledo strip.  Neutral site.  Gotta love it.

And Noblesville. I would think a team struggling in the HCC would want to some gimme's on the OOC schedule to teach the kids how to win. I hope they don't have Carmel in week 2 again.

Pickerington Central (Columbus) , Cathedral's week 2 opponent, won the Ohio Big School Division 1 state championship last night with a 56-28 win over Mentor (Cleveland)

Ohio plays all of its state championship games in Akron at the Hall of Fame Stadium, a 23000 seat outdoor venue.  Games are played over a 3 day period from Nov 30 to Dec 2.  Great weather this year.  Much better atmosphere than a 65000 seat indoor facility that is 90% empty for the Indiana high school state championships.  

Interesting facts about the Ohio tournament :

*  719  high schools play football in Ohio.   224 make the post season tournament.   Thats 31%    

* Ohio population is 11, 610,000  / 719 schools / avg residents for football playing school is 16147

* Indiana population is 6,633,000 / 320 schools / avg residents for football playing school is 20728

* Ohio seeds its tournament brackets.

* Higher seeds are rewarded with home games early in the playoffs until games are switched to neutral sites for the final 3 rounds.

* 2 publics played for the D1 championship.  PP powers Cleveland St Ignatius and Cincinnati St X were eliminated in regionals.

What elements of the Ohio model could Indiana emulate to increase interest and stem declining attendance at the IHSAA state football finals?

I wouldn't get your heart set on Cathedral joining a conference anytime soon.

When did they move the Tom Benson Hall of Fame Stadium from Canton to Akron? When did they move the Ohio State Football Championships this year from Canton to Akron? 

By the way it used to be called Fawcett Stadium, it was demolished in 2015 and they rebuilt a new stadium. Last year the Ohio Football State Championships were played at Ohio Stadium at Ohio State University
