TITLE FAVORITES:
St. Ignatius, St. Edward, St. Xavier, Colerain and Whitmer

KEEP AN EYE ON:
Pickerington North, Moeller, Coffman, Massillon

SLEEPERS:
Darby, Mentor, Pickerington Central, Elder

TOUGHEST REGION: Region 1
Seven of the eight teams are 9-1 or 10-0. The field also includes four of the final 10 teams in the Ohio National Guard JJHuddle D-I Power Poll: St. Edward (No. 1), St. Ignatius (No. 2), Mentor (No. 5) and Warren Harding (No. 8).

BEST FIRST ROUND GAME: St. Xavier @ Colerain, Region 4
The Bombers snuck into the playoffs as the No. 8 seed but could very well be Ohio’s top ranked team should they have made a few more plays this season. St. X’s four losses are to St. Edward, St. Ignatius, Colerain and Louisville Trinity. The Bombers led in all four losses and had fourth quarter leads against Colerain (28-21), Trinity (13-7) and St. Ignatius  (21-19). Did we mention St. Xavier is the GCL South Champion? This is the Regional Final – in my opinion

Runners-Up:

*7 Austintown-Fitch (9-1) at 2 Cleveland St. Ignatius (9-1)
St. Ignatius seemed invincible until last week’s loss to St. Edward. No one outside of Austintown is saying the Falcons will beat the Wildcats, but this will be a tough game. Only one team – Massillon Washington – has scored more than 10 points on the Falcons this season.

*5 Pickerington Central (7-2) at 4 Pickerington North (9-1)
The Panthers beat the Tigers 37-0 in Week 6 for their first victory ever over Pick Central in six tries. Now they must beat the Tigers again. This time North gets to host.
