Orrville has surprised many getting here. I think they may surprise again.

Good luck, Orrville!

I believe Marquael Parks is 30-some points from the OHSAA single season scoring record. But they've proven to be much more than just Parks.

Good luck to the Riders! They probably have the best athlete in Parks, but also a good supporting cast.

Feel like our league and region has really prepared us.

Our D has went against some really good backs this year.
Marthey (Tuslaw) twice, Wright (Manchester) twice, Charleston (Gilmour) & Tucker (CVCA).

The thought this year has been if we can win the right combination of games we could make the playoffs and win the league...and then it was "can we get out of our region?" knowing Gilmour and Manchester would be challenges.

Playoffs are about matchups, team health and a little bit of luck. We've been on the good side of all 3 so far. Parks is a difference maker on both sides of the ball but we've got a lot around him. Similar to the 98 team with Dru Robinson, he grabbed a lot of headlines...but had plenty around him as well.

Have not seen either team play but was blown away by the Johnstown- Wheelersburg score. Johnstown also beat DIV final four team Licking Valley earlier on in the year. Sounds like they aren't the biggest of teams size wise but quickness and speed kills. Should be a great game!!

Rain all day Saturday. Does it affect JM's snappy ball handling or ORR's ability to go over the top?
JM's line might be one of the best of the weekend. ORR's skill requires DBs to make tackles.
ORR scored 38pts on 40 plays last week. JM plays "running clock" games from the kickoff & makes you pay for TO's.
This really could be one of the best of the weekend.

I haven't seen Johnstown but I have seen plenty of Orville to doubt them. They are very talented. Parks makes plays on both sides of the ball and if you focus on him, Domer can hurt you with Hall and the taller kid outside. I will go with Orville.

Just a thought, Imagine if Orville still had the Phipps kid from last year. Holy cow would they be good!!

Don’t to much about Orrville except I see you have a very fast RB But you guys will be facing “The 3 Headed Monster”
Johnstown has a very decent size line Our QB will hurt you with Feet, 2 very good back , and get ready for ground and pound offense That wear Defenses out , Our Defense is Very fast on the line So your QB better be ready to run or throw We also have faced a lot of RBs With great yards all year
But I have Johnstown winning this Seeing you said Parker plays both ways he will get wore out
these boys are on a mission to win state and they have been saying this since August

Stick 9 in the box and The Johns are helpless to veer from their game plan. If you have them down by 30 at the half, they’ll still be grounding and pounding. I’d be interested in knowing how many pass completions they have in 14 games.

In the game they lost this year, I'm pretty sure they had zero, against that same team last year they also had zero pass completions, on 1 attempt.

The weather might be more of a hindrance to Orrville's running back Parks. The kid can switch directions in a heartbeat. If the rain limits his ability to make his cuts Orrville could be in trouble.

If itís a Downpour I see Johnstown eating up the clock and Grounding the ball every run they have 3 backs Plus if Orrville plays players both sides of the ball 2nd half they maybe tired

What's with the recurring "Orrville will get tired" comments? I've yet to see it and if you're banking on that you're in for a letdown.

If Parks gets loose (rain or no rain) have fun chasing him. That has worn out a lot of our opponents this year. He's got lots of talent around him...so careful focusing too much attention on him.

I like Johnstown in this one. They have continued to impress me throughout the year and see this team finishing the season the right way. Good luck to both

It's pretty bizarre isn't it. Orville went against some really good teams with some really good talent and now all of the sudden they will fatigue? I will bet that Johnstown has not seen the quality of backs that Orville has. They went against Wright 2 times and Tucker and held up fine. Both made plays and got their yards but it wasn't like it was because Orville was gassed. SMH.

rider, your QB hurt us as much, if not more, in the Regional Championship game. My hopes are on Orrville.

Just merely someone's opinion which may or may not come true but that's why they play the games! I think Johnstown put everyone on notice when they blasted the defending DV champs Wheelersburg last week. Orrville has had a nice run to so this looks to be a great matchup!!

Orrville wins this game by three touchdowns. R17 is the most underrated region in any division this year. Any of the top four teams in that region would win the DV title. The real state championship in DV was probably played in week 12 or week 13. Manchester and Gilmour would both win this week by at least two scores. LaBrae would win by at least a touchdown.

I get the feeling that both teams have been doubted or underestimated at times this year. Hoping for (and expecting) a great game! Good luck to Orrville!

I saw Johnstown play Steubenville in a D!V playoff game a couple of years ago. They were a well coached hard nose football team. I think they are happy to be DV now and are better suited for this division.

I saw Johnstown-Monroe play in-person when they faced off against Norwayne in the state semifinals in 2011. Norwayne beat them by 31 and ended up knocking off Kenton in the state finals.

Went to JM and Burg game.

Texted some buddies prior to game during warm-ups and said Burg wins the eye test easily.

Texted the same buddies after Burg scored on their second play from scrimmage and said looks like it might be a running clock. Glad no one was around me to wager anything because I would have went all in on Burg at that moment in time.

That was the only thing Burg did all night. Wasn't the same team as Burg had last year but still JM simply dominated every aspect of the game. Know nothing about Orrville but if JM can stay ahead of the chains or close to it, and stay in their game plan they will be a tough out. Their QB #39 is small in stature only, plays big and is tough, same with their backs.

Appeared to me they had a true 2-platoon system for O&D, or at least very close to it. Struck me as odd for a DV but they obviously did well with it. Look forward to watching this game on TV.

Orrville only plays their stud skill players both ways looks like they platoon most of their team as well. I think if JM can get 10-15 play drives and make orrville drive the field and limit big plays by their 3 studs (21,3,4) I think jtown will grind it out. I think Jtown D will surprise if they stay focused on their job and not leave their assignment trying to stop parks. Jtown needs to get out to an early lead
