Location: Wapakoneta HS (Friday, 7 p.m.)

*McComb (13-0)
Head Coach:
Kris Alge
Nickname: Panthers
National Guard JJHuddle Power Poll: 1
AP Poll: 2
2012 Seed: #1 Region 22
2012 Regional Tournament: 8 Arlington (W, 14-0); 5 Tiffin Calvert (W, 42-0); 6 Delphos St. John’s (W, 28-21)
State Championships: 1 (83)

*Maria Stein Marion Local (11-2)
Head Coach:
Tim Goodwin
Nickname: Flyers
National Guard JJHuddle Power Poll: 2
AP Poll:
7
2012 Seed: #3 Region 24
2012 Regional Tournament: 6 Bradford (W, 53-27); 2 Minster (W, 41-34); 4 St. Henry (W, 28-21)
State Championships: 5 (11, 07, 06, 01, 00)

All-Time Tournament Record: 46-9

Outlook: Marion Local’s playoff success is absurd. The Flyers have been to the playoffs 15 times and have won 11 regional titles. Their overall postseason record is 46-9. ML is the defending state champion and has employed a new spread offense this season built around junior QB Adam Bertke, a D-I prospect. Sophomore RB Jacey Goettemoller has been huge. McComb actually has more postseason berths (16) than Marion Local. Senior RB Jerry Brown is the most electric player in Ohio in D-VI. It’ll take a huge effort from him to combat the Flyers.

D-I Commits: None

Drew Pasteur Fantastic 50: McComb
Cal Preps Pick: McComb
Eric Frantz Pick: Marion Local
