The high school football regular season is often referred to as the "fastest 10 weeks of the year." We're seven weeks away from the start of the season, so here's a look, for now, at the top games each week.
WARREN HARDING AT CANTON MCKINLEY - The Raiders and Bulldogs renew their series in the first high school football game at the newly refurbished Tom Benson Hall of Fame Stadium in Canton.
HOWLAND AT BOARDMAN - These two programs always met for their second scrimmage. Now they’re playing in week two.
STRUTHERS AT NILES - The Wildcats only loss in the 2016 regular season came to the Red Dragons in week 3, 21-20
POLAND AT HOWLAND - The Bulldogs gave up two late touchdowns in a 35-34 shootout loss last season. Poland looks to rebound from a 4-6 season and the Tigers look for a second straight playoff appearance.
MOONEY AT BOARDMAN – The Spartans beat Cardinals to start the season 2-0. They finished 4-6, while Mooney advanced to second round of the playoffs before losing.
CAMPBELL AT STRUTHERS - School officials agreed to play this season after talk of ending the rivalry due to the difference in school size. This could be the last game between neighboring schools.
CANFIELD AT POLAND - With the breakup of the White Tier of the All-American Conference, will these two rivals continue to play in week 10?
