The teams  The Jackson Polar Bears responded well last week from a 34-7 loss to GlenOak in Week 4, but it still wasn’t enough to get in the win column, as McKinley scored late in a 22-14 win.

COLUMBUS  The Ohio High School Athletic Association released its second weekly football computer ratings today and GlenOak is the only area school to be leading a region.

AUSTINTOWN  By halftime, GlenOak was missing its starting right tackle, and, even worse, its Ohio State-bound running back.

CANTON  After what was essentially the game-clinching tackle Friday, Chad Fite ran toward the sideline, stopped and saluted the McKinley crowd with his right hand.

He couldn’t use his left arm since it was wrapped with enough tape to make a mummy envious.

CANTON  Fitch High School’s star quarterback Demitrious Davis is not in uniform for tonight’s 7:30 game with McKinley at Fawcett Stadium. He is out with a knee injury.

CANTON  There really isn’t any sugarcoating Ron Johnson can put on it. The McKinley High School football team’s defensive line, simply, has got to play better.
McKinley needs more from its defensive line as the Bulldogs prepare to host powerful Fitch.
Particularly this week.
