Heading into Scrimmage week for a lot of central Ohio schools...

Olentangy Orange seems to be a heavy favorite...

Will anyone be able to give them a run for their money?

Any other Story lines or teams to look out for?

I wouldn’t be surprised to see the OCC-Buckeye finish in a split (2-way or 3-way.) Lancaster returns literally no one from 2019 and lost a kid that would’ve started in the middle (or would’ve been their DH) to transfer.

I still think the Gales will have a fine team. But this division is just... who knows.

@BVG18

You have FH and Reynoldsburg both predicted to beat each other. I would presume Reynoldsburg is the one you meant to have winning.

Good predictions, all around. W. South vs New Albany is the best game that I see of OCC school vs OCC school (non-league) for first games. I would pick NA, though.

Could not agree more.

Really up in the air.

Thanks! Just updated! Reynoldsburg has a "True ACE" on the staff who should hold his own in that league...

South/New Albany should be a great one. Loads of talent...

This will be Westerville South's most talented roster in quite a while...

I honestly would not be surprised if Westland v. Centennial was a genuinely good opening game. Centennial has UC commit C.J. Dean leading the way, and I thought Westland beat up on West Jeff in a scrim.

Looks good.

Give me Olentangy ahead of Lancaster, though. Gales have a solid squad that is ahead of where you'd think they would be at with their youth and inexperience, but not top 10!

I guess we will find out tonight! Ha! (Olentangy @ Lancaster)

Olentangy has just really struggled out of the gate here. Not a whole lot of depth, and their top guys really haven't performed thus far.
