Mckinley Bulldogs Team News

Two weeks ago, Jeff Durbin was watching a second-round playoff game between Cleveland Glenville and Midview on Sports Time Ohio when he saw a graphic listing the schools with the most playoff victories without winning a state title.

There will be home football games for the McKinley Bulldogs after all next year.

Canton City Schools District Superintendent Adrian E. Allison announced that McKinley will play its five home football games at Central Catholic’s Lowell Klinefelter Field next season.

McKinley High football coach Dan Reardon has spent the past four months serving as a father figure on his weekday afternoons. But as he wrapped up a phone interview at 6:45 p.m. Monday, he was back to being just a father.

The All-Stark Division V regional semifinal featuring Sandy Valley and Central Catholic will be played within the county.
Massillon Paul Brown Tiger Stadium will be the site of the game, which kicks off at 7:30 p.m. Friday. Sandy Valley (10-1) is the second seed, while Central (8-3) is the third seed.

Both McKinley and Toledo Whitmer chose to run the football — a lot — in their Division I state playoff football game Saturday.
