Massillon Washington Tigers

The Tigers had a remarkable season in 2012. They beat D-IV state
champion Akron SVSM, Steubenville and rival Canton McKinley twice,
knocking the Bulldogs out of the playoffs in Week 12. Massillon fell to
Whitmer in the regional final. There are holes to fill, but the Tigers
have a solid nucleus intact. Expectations are high and they should be.
