The Ohio High School Athletic Association oversees all sports for high school athletes. They also do the rankings for the football teams which determine which 8 teams make the playoffs at the conclusion of the season. They have alot of good information there for parents and student athletes. Here is the link to the OHSAA site. Another good site for high school football scores and rankings is Joe Eitel's site for Ohio HS scores. Joe ranks all the teams in their respective divisions and though "unofficial" for years he is now the "official" source of the OSHAA for their rankings. Last but not least if you are still not getting enough high school football information to feed your habit try Dan Pasteur's Ohio Fantastic 50, MaxPreps or JJ Huddle.
