There is info missing for Div 2. Which regions play each other?

I found this on the website...

COLUMBUS, Ohio – The Ohio High School Athletic Association has announced how the football regional champions will be paired in four of the OHSAA’s seven divisions for next week’s state semifinals. Three of the divisions (II, IV and V) cannot be determined until after the regional championships have been decided.

The football state semifinal pairings are not predetermined because they are based almost entirely on geography of the competing schools to keep travel time to a minimum. Regional seeds, records or rankings do not factor into the state semifinal pairings.

OHSAA is waiting to see if the 2 privates win so they can pit them against each other to avoid an all private final.

those things usually never work out though

DIV probably depends on who wins R16. If it's Wyoming, it makes some sense to pair them against the winner of R14 since St. Marys is close to I-75, and Clear Fork is close to I-71. If it's London, you could pair them with either the R14 or R15 winner. The R13 winner could play St. Clairsville somewhere like Steubenville, or they could play Licking Valley somewhere like Dover or New Philly.


DV probably depends on who wins R19 and R20, especially R20. If Meadowbrook wins R19, it would make some sense to pair them against the R17 winner if Madison wins R20. If Wheelersburg wins R20, they likely get the R19 winner. If Madison wins R20, they could get the R18 winner, or they could get Johnstown-Monroe.

Not a bad idea to wait. Back in the day when films were poor and it was imperative to have scouts at the games you needed to announce it but nowadays teams have much better resources.

When did they start delaying announcing some of these? Number of years ago we shoulda played a team that was 40 miles away but instead they had it set up ahead of time the other way around.........to ensure a private/public final

Wheelersburg wins and they go north to play winner of R19 Johnstown/Meadowbrook.

Madison wins and they go north to play winner of R18 Genoa/Liberty Center

They'll hope Avon wins, setting up Avon and Hoban in one semi, massillon and a cincy team in the other.

Even if TCC does win, is till don't see why they wouldn't have them play Hoban and have massillon play the cincy team

it's really no big deal

Oh it is a big deal. A Hoban - Massillon gate will be crazy but even moreso in a finals. Of course they'd have TCC play Hoban. Well, that's the theory anyhow.

Hoban is by far the recognized favorite and TCC second. If the favorites win, TCC vs. Hoban in the semi is OHSAA's best chance at a Hoban - Massillon final, at least on paper with no knock on the other teams. But it would not even be a good attempt at covering up their desire as Toledo has in the past played the I-75 opponent. Around Sydney as I recall.


If it works out, all the favorites win, I personally wouldn't mind the TCC-Hoban match-up in the semis. I'd like to see that match-up and it would be a lot closer to Toledo in the semis than a finals match-up in Stark.

I think DIV is because of everyone besides R13. Hubbard and Girard are so close together, it doesn’t matter which one of them win. The rest are kind of spaced out from each other.

It is a huge deal. Hoban and Massillon are less than 45 minutes from each other. Cincinnati and TCC are on the complete opposite side of the state as both teams. If they had Massillon play Winton Woods/Anderson and Hoban play TCC, it would make absolutely no sense geographically and would show that the OHSAA is trying to do everything they can to stop an all-private final. Private schools would call for a seperate tournament or something and high school football wouldn’t be the same. If there was a change to be made, I would have one side of the bracket be public schools and the other side be private and the two champs would meet in the finals. However I think the playoffs are perfect the way they are.

Maybe Im missing something but I googled the distances of the remaining schools and every potential matchup between 17 and 19 was closer than any other possible matchup. One other was close but 17/19 was closer.

A short trip for the R17 and R19 winners would create a ridiculously long trip for the R18 winner in the event that Wheelersburg wins R20. It's also not necessarily a hop, skip, and a jump to pair Madison against either of the R18 teams if Madison should win 20.

2004 Hardin Northern (24) played Danville(23)

2003 Marion Local (24) played Newark Catholic (23)

1996 St Henry (24) played Hardin Northern (23) yes (23)

The Region 22 and 23 winners are going to get obliterated in the Semi-final games in Division 6. Might as well pencil in whoever comes out of region 21 and 24 into the finals.

Always have to make sure to get an Eastern team into the finals. I'd be curious to know how many times the western final was more competitive than the next week's state final.

ok. I just found a quote from an OHSAA official saying it is the total distanced traveled of both games combined. As long as their is consistency... that's cool

Aside from JFK winning 24-6 over Minster. You have to go back to 2013 to find an example of it not being a closer game in the finals than in the western semis, and that is if you consider 35-6 to be "more competitive" than 33-0.
