Potential New Football Programs

With Tri-Village in their 3rd Varsity season in 2018, Stryker in their 1st Varsity season, and Pioneer North Central and Olentangy Berlin hiring their first football coach, it has me wondering what other schools that don't have football currently that could. Thoughts?

I don’t think it’s unrealistic that Mason would open a new school. They have one of the highest enrollments in the state and they are still building house throughout the city.

I don't think that's out of the question either. They have like 1300 boys in grades 9-11.

Mason has finally gotten competitive in football (despite dwarfing almost everyone in terms of enrollment).

There is no way Castner will let them split the school. The Superintendent and School Board may ask him permission to do so, but he will say "no" for sure. Probably "Fuq No!" to be exact.

I think at some point a new school or addition will need to be built to accomidate the influx students. If a new school has to be built you may see a push for a second school. I can't see Castner having the final say. I know he has a lot of power within the school but I don't think that much. I didn't realize how many students Mason had until I checked a few days ago. There is still plenty of houses being built and at some point you have to think they will divide the district between 2 high schools.

As far as new football programs at existing schools, West Union, North Adams, Peebles, and Winchester Eastern all have some club teams that someday could convert to official school teams. Middletown Christian hopes to convert back to official OHSAA too. Toledo Horizon Science and Elyria Open Door would be quick to jump on 8-Man.

Olentangy has a 10+ year plan on a 5th high school, we shall see if it comes to fruition.

Pickerington South?

I'd like to see all those Club teams become full members. Open Door isn't big enough to have Soccer and Football IMO. As much as the Columbus Suburbs are growing, none of those would surprise me either. I know Houston in Shelby County had Youth Football. Unsure if they still do or not. I know they are big enough for a football team. Lincolnview?

I would love to see Berlin Hiland get football. They are great in pretty much every other sport.

IIRC their land they built their soccer and baseball fields on were offered under a trust that reverts back to the original owners should the school offer football.

I think a good part of the reason they are strong in basketball is because they don't have football. Talk about open gym,they wear it out. But I think they would be similar to Strasburg by that I mean very respectable in all sports.

Me either, I know there was discussion about the same time Loramie started their program, but haven't heard anything for a few years.

...all theoretically could scrounge up a D 7 roster, But in today's environment not sure football is going to grow much. Probably those that are in a community area with youth football would be most likely.

Houston had youth football and they've had talks of a varsity program before but unsure if they still do. Lincolnview, if they cut boys soccer, could easily field a team. They'd probably get a few Van Wert open enrollees if they did.

Theres also Cross County Conference schools like Franklin-Monroe and Newton which might be able to but soccer makes It iffy.

Newton had a team in the 50s, but a player died and they swore off football then. It's really too small to field both soccer and football.
FM, would be like Tri Village. But FM is a basketball school.
I think CCC will not expand with current members.

That's too bad. Franklin-Monroe and Newton would both have to cut boys soccer just to have football enter the topic of discussion. If the CCC expands again, I'd say it'd be Troy Christian and Preble Shawnee. Dixie would also fit the CCC mold.

I never understood why Lordstown never had football. They have the boy population for a team, their in a conference where teams have football. Wouldn't have a problem scheduling teams either, they shouldn't have a problem building a stadium. Or at worst share with Niles, Newton Falls?

It always seems odd to me that Trumbull County has four public schools without football. Lordstown bring the most obvious. Though I did see a guy in Youngstown wearing a Lordstown Football shirt that said undefeated since xxxx (whatever year it was since the 70s or something).

But the three northern schools surprised me. Badger, Maplewood and Bristol. Father went to Badger. Never thought it was odd even back then. They'd just go to games at Cortland or Brookfield or Warren even.

I have nephews from maplewood that wear a similar shirt. They've never had football, so it's kind of a running joke.

if they've never had a team they've never lost.

Maplewood (Cortland) certainly could. I believe it's been brought up several times but always shot down.

I think the health questions/concussion safety concerns would limit "new" programs developing. I think there is more of a chance to see new schools within growing suburbs specifically Columbus to have new schools.
