9. Defiance Tinora (8-0)
No joke. The Rams defense IS ridiculous. Tinora recorded its sixth straight shutout and seventh of the season with a 67-0 win over Ayersville. The Rams have given up 18 points total this year and those all came in a 37-18 win over Parkway in Week 2. This week Tinora hosts winless Holgate so expect that shutout streak to continue. Previous: NR

10. Archbold (8-0)
Led by the senior pass and catch combo of QB Garrett Morton and WR Desmond Sleigh, Archbold makes its Power Poll debut after snapping Patrick Henry’s 27-game regular season win streak, 35-14, and aligning itself to end the Patriots eight-year hold on the Northwest Ohio Athletic League title. With two more wins, the Blue Streaks will also secure their first league title since 1990. Morton completed 23-of-36 passes for 369 yards and five TDs against PH. Four of those scoring strikes went to Sleigh who caught nine passes for 211 yards. Previous: NR
