The OHSAA allowing Hoban to remain as a D 2 is laughable. They draw from Summt, Portage, Stark and probably Median counties. Really like Fitch this year!
Well they sent the defending D-II champion Central Catholic down to absolutely domiante everyone in D-III. Maybe that was purposely to allow a clear path for Hoban in D-II since they couldn't beat TCC.

I guess you missed the 2015 first time matchup? First of 5 in a row.

I don't have anything against Archbishop Hoban, it was just a joke. Although, Canfield has never faced Hoban, they have faced Central Catholic and I don't like them to be perfectly honest, especially Dane Sanzenbacher never liked him specifically.

You do realize that enrollment determines division assignments, right? Or maybe you'd rather they leave Hoban in D3, which is where their enrollment would land them without the CB metric.

This region seems very weak. Very top heavy, comes down to Fitch and Hoban... maybe SVSM, Hudson, Nordonia and Solon can make it interesting...

Huh??? More like Hoban, Hudson, Walsh Jesuit, Riverside, Fitch, with SVSM, Nordonia and others capable of making noise. By the way, Walsh dominated Fitch last week to the tune of a 17-0 first half. Not making too much of that, but it doesn't match up with your thoughts on the region.

...for this list, Austintown Fitch is like the kid in school who's name is "Aaron Anderson" and gets picked first cuz his name begins with an "A".

Hoban aside (naturally), at this point gimme SVSM, Riverside, Walsh and Hudson over the Falcons.
