WGH RAIDERS / CANTON BULLDOGS open up the new[remodeled] stadium in Canton on Saturday week one. Both legacy programs that have a lot of history but have not played each other in several years.

Best week 1 game to me is Huber Hts. Wayne at Pine Richland. Wayne is top 5 Division I in Ohio. Pine Richland is a WPIAL and PA 6A power that lost to St. Edward last year by a point. And they return their all everything stud QB who is committed to Notre Dame. It should be a classic. It is on Sunday at 2:00 though. It is also on ESPNU, mainly due to them showcasing PR QB Phil Jurkovec. He will be the main attraction. But has his hands full vs. Wayne. Game of the week!

FIRELANDS v EDISON will be a great game Week 1

This will be a very good game to attend week one on the west side!

Here's the entire list of first week games.

Springfield at Lancaster might be an interesting one to attend, because I don't have any recollection of them playing each other, at least in the recent past anyway.

For those in West Central Ohio, Kenton (WBL) visits Coldwater (MAC) in their annual week one rivalry game. Teams should be more evenly matched this season than in recent years.

We were told the game is at 1:00 and also that the game will be on ESPN2 not ESPN-U.....

Everywhere I've looked, I've seen 2:00 on ESPNU. I am not 100% in the know, but that's what I read on every site I've been on. I just went to the ESPN site for their HS football schedule and it now has it listed on ESPN at 1:30. So based on that, I'm guessing the pregame is 1:30, game at 2:00, but now on ESPN. ??????

Tippecanoe @ Bellbrook

Both were 7-3 last year and both return over 20 letter winners. Both run the Wing-T, should be a great matchup

I am now seeing 1:30 as the start time on Wayne's site.... hopefully the correct time will be known but I will be leaving at 6 AM for the game and should get there around 11:30 so either way I should be there in plenty of time....

Could Troy pull off 3 in a row against the Rams? I know Trotwood cannot afford this loss especially with Pick Central and Wayne on the schedule. 3 losses may not get them in the playoffs.

The visitor side isn't the biggest at Pine-Richland. Home side is really nice.

Before I knew this game was on ESPN I stated that the Wayne crowd would fill the visitor stands but now I think most will stay at home and watch. I stand for away games so I need to be on the top row..... plus I like to show up really early at places I have never been before just in case there is anything else I would want to check out.....

Kettering Alter vs Kettering Fairmont... On a Thursday night this year on tv. Biggest game in SW Ohio hands down. Nothing comes even close... 10K fans at Roush stadium. Fairmont has 2600 kids in the school while Alter has 625. Alter will be entering the game with a 12 game winning streak and have won 15 of the past 16 matchups...

I've been to two ESPN games on a Sunday. Beech @ Station Camp (TN) and Lakewood St. Edward v. Gilman. Both games, crowds showed up very early because of the appeal of being on TV. The heat/sun at both games was miserable. The visitor side at Pine-Richland offers no safety from the sun. Just hope for a cloudy day.

The home side is really nice. I was there for a Thursday night game back when Root Sports (now AT&T Sportsnet) used to air a game of the week on Thursdays. The home crowd isn't the biggest, but I have a feeling at least the students will be out in force.

The school is in the middle of nowhere, it's not easily accessible. There's a ton of parking, but a lot on the other side of the school from the field. An odd suggestion is to NOT get to the school from Cranberry (where I-79 and I-76 intersect), but to actually take I-76 east to Route 8, and then head west to the school. More of the crowd will be coming east/north from the I-79 corridor more than from the east. So, you'll fight less traffic on the very windy roads in that area. I-76 is an ungodly expensive toll road, though. So, that's your call. But, just eyeballing it, it's harder to get to the school from inside Pine Twp than it is from the east and Richland Twp (hence the school name, if you're curious). Wexford, the fringe of the Craberry area, south of Mars, etc is the area that's booming. And those road are horribly inadequate.

Where are you coming from? Sounds like you're a Wayne fan, so must be coming from Dayton. It will be an awesome atmosphere and 2 solid teams. Great week 1 opener! Have a safe trip to and from.

Huber Heights.... will be driving or taking the bus...

Thanks, just hoping Wayne can keep it close. They lost a ton from graduation over the last 2 years plus some that moved out of the area that would of likely started.....
