Independent schools

How many football playing schools are independant with no conference affiliation? And can one of our knowledgeable posters list them?

That was per OHSAA as of Aug 2017. Other posters can add or deduct from that for the current list.

Tough for independents to fill the schedule year after year. Even tougher when schools back of of deals to play.

Twice as tough when no local teams will step up and play.

No doubt being independent has its flaws, Massillon however has never failed to fill out a ten game schedule.

Youngstown Christian (Mahoning) changed its name to Valley Christian a few years ago. AFAIK, they are still a member of the Portage Trail Conference - County Division.

Even though Ashtabula St. John (Ashtabula) plays nearly all of the members of the NAC, I don't believe that the school is an actual league member.

Is there another reason this particular thread was started?

For instance, was Crimson and Black trying to see if there were enough independents from the same area (somewhat) to form a league with other independents and/or people not happy with the league they are in (or know their league is dying and trying to get out now)?

Steubenville is an independent. Not trying to advocate joining any league. Was simply curious as to how many there were. Although The Big Red is listed as a member of the OVAC, they are never eligible for the title because at most, they play only one team from the OVAC. Since 2005 Big Red has played only 32 games out of 178 against OVAC teams. Last year they played zero OVAC teams. SHS is an independent on the grid Orion but an OVAC member in all other sports. What kind of league produces a state champ but not the league champion. And all of this is OK with the Big Red nation because we have no interest in competing in a very weak football conference where none of the members want to play us.

Gridiron, a term for the field marked with yard-lines on which American and Canadian codes of football are played


Orion:

And likely even more difficult when an independent insists on playing 7 home games per year.

Perhaps.

Those schools that insist on playing so many home games can usually offer up a financial incentive to make it worth the visitors' while to do so.

7 home games is a lot, does this team have open dates each season ? I bet it would be tough to find 10 teams to play when your wanting 7 of them at home.

Metro Buckeye Conference doesn't have football. TC, Dayton Christian, & Jefferson are the only schools that play football. I don't know if DC belongs to another conference for football or not. Jefferson was already listed as being independent.
