HS footballThe high school football season has come to an end in Ohio with the crowning of new champions in all six divisions.

Although there were no repeat winners this year, there were some familiar names bringing home crowns.

Division I

Pickerington Central 13

St. Ignatius has now won 11 state titles, most in state history in all divisions.

Division II

Springfield Shawnee 14

The Cardinals earned their eighth state championship and moved them into a second place tie with Newark Catholic for the most football titles in state history.

Division IV

Creston Norwayne 48

Kenton 42

Norwayne spoiled Maty Mauk’s bid to top off his prolific career with a crown by scoring a touchdown with 31 seconds left, followed by intercepting a 50-yard Hail Mary on the final play. Mauk completed 27-of-50 passes for 421 yards and five TDs and also carried the ball 22 times for 50 yards and another TD. His five passing TDs broke the previous D-IV finals record of four set by his brother Ben.

Division V

Kirtland 28

Coldwater 7

The Cavaliers have made three straight D-V state finals and will look to add a fourth next year, as they return 15 starters from this year's team. In its five playoff games Kirtland’s defense allowed just 29 total points and no team scored double-digits on the Hornets. Overall, through 15 games, Kirtland allowed a measly 98 points. Kirtland had six shutouts and allowed just two teams to reach double-digits: Pepper Pike Orange (16) in week 3 and Cuyahoga Heights (12) in Week 5.

Division VI

Marion Local 61

Buckeye Central 21

Marion Local becomes the ninth school with at least five state titles – the fourth such school from the MAC – joining league mates Delphos St John’s (six), St. Henry (six), and Versailles (six). The Flyers join the latter two as the only public schools with five or more titles. The MAC has also produced at least one football state champion each of the last nine years.
