The Top 10 teams in the JJHuddle Division I Power Poll went undefeated
this past week and outscored the opposition 416-56. They also recorded
three shutouts and the only team to score more than 10 points was
Moeller, which lost to LaSalle. There’s no movement in the Top 10, but
the “Keep An Eye On” schools look drastically different this week.
JJHUDDLE’S DIVISION I POWER POLL WEEK 9
1. Colerain (8-0)
The Cardinals moved one step closer to their 11th straight Greater Miami Conference title with a 56-7 thumping of host Princeton. Sophomore RB Chris Davis scored three TDs and senior FB Trayion Durham ran for a team high 122 yards as the Cardinals out-gained the Vikings 409-5 on the ground. This week Colerain hosts Sycamore (5-3).
2. Glenville (8-0)
Since their Week 2 win over Dwyer (Fla.), the Tarblooders have won the last six games 284-25. Their most recent victim was Cleveland John Adams who they shutout 53-0. Senior QB Cardale Jones threw for 187 yards and two TDs and also ran for three TDs. Robert Walton, Jr. rushed for 99 yards and two TDs. This week Glenville hosts John Hay (5-3). Previous:
3. Pickerington Central (7-0)

4. Lakewood St. Edward (8-0)
Led by its big offensive line and senior RB Reggie Terrell, the Eagles beat Cincinnati St. Xavier 20-3. Terrell rushed for 212 yards and two TDs on 36 carries. St. Ed has allowed just 15 points in its last six wins and has held seven straight opponents to under 200 yards of total offense. This week the Eagles travel south to face Moeller (6-2). Previous: 4
5. Hilliard Davidson (8-0)
This is the reality. In the last five weeks, Davidson has scored 257 points. It’s allowed 15. The latest victim – Dublin Coffman – was supposed to pose a bigger threat than the previous seven opponents, but the Rocks could only roll three points in a 27-3 loss. The Wildcats head to Upper Arlington (6-2) this week and face a Golden Bears team that’s outscored its last two foes 156-6.
6. Cincinnati LaSalle (8-0)
years of varsity football, LaSalle has never won an outright GCL South
championship. In fact, the Lancers have only shared the title once.
Matching a feat notched only by its 1995 squad, which shared the title
with Elder, LaSalle won at least a piece of its second GCL title ever
with a 31-21 win over Moeller. The Lancers can win their first outright
title ever by beating Elder at its fabled “Pit” on the final Friday of
the regular season. Before that they head north to face Columbus DeSales
(4-4) this week. Previous: 7
7. Solon (8-0)
The Comets notched their second straight shutout and third of the season with a 45-0 win over Nordonia. Senior QB Chris Humphrey ran for 100 yards and three TDs. This week the Comets host Medina (7-1). Previous: 6
8. Austintown-Fitch (8-0)
Ahead just 13-10, the Falcons scored 35 unanswered points and smashed Massillon Perry 48-10. Junior QB Demitrious Davis ran for 164 yards and three TDs and threw for 123 yards and another score. This week Fitch travels to Uniontown Lake (6-2). Previous: 8
9. Middletown (8-0)
The Middies out-gained Fairfield 314-11 in total yards and beat the Indians 38-2. Sophomore QB Jalin Marshall threw for 89 yards and a TD and ran for 86 yards and two TDs. This week the Middies host Lakota East (3-5). Previous: 10
10. Springfield (7-1)
The Wildcats held Beavercreek to 152 total yards in a 34-10 win. Sophomore QB JC Wallace threw for 263 yards and a TD and junior HB George Walker ran for 153 yards and three TDs and caught three passes for 103 yards. This week Springfield hosts Centerville (6-2) in a huge game with GWOC Central Division title and playoff implications.
