All-American applicants: The list of teams seeking to join the All-American Conference has grown by two more, AAC commissioner Rick King confirmed to a Vindicator reporter on Tuesday. Youngstown Christian and Steubenville are the latest to seek membership, King said. Steubenville, which boasts one of Ohio’s storied football programs, has applied only for football. There appear to be no lack of schools seeking spots in the AAC. Last month, King told the Vindicator that Boardman, East, Warren Harding, Brookfield, Ashtabula Edgewood and Conneaut had applied for membership. The AAC is expected to vote on the applications on May 1.
