Division I, III titles won

PICKERINGTON CENTRAL 21, CINCINNATI ELDER 14: CANTON — Knotted up at 14 with 5:21 left in the Division I football state championship on Friday night, Pickerington Central was ready to punt the ball back to Cincinnati Elder after being stopped a yard short on third down. Elder decided to use the first of its three timeouts to set up its punt return. Pickerington used the timeout to scheme up a fourth-down play, which the Tigers converted as first-team All-Ohio senior quarterback Demeatric Crenshaw ran off tackle to the right for four yards and a Tiger first down.

TROTWOOD-MADISON 14, MANSFIELD 7, OT: CANTON — No. 7 Trotwood-Madison (12-3) defeated No. 9 Mansfield Senior (13-2) in overtime in the Division III championship. It’s the Rams eighth football state championship appearance and third title with their last being in 2017. It wasn’t until the third quarter when Mansfield Senior broke the scoreless tie with a 94-yard rushing touchdown from senior Terrance Flickinger. After making a change at quarterback to senior Keon-Tae Huguely, Trotwood came back to tie the game with 8:11 remaining, when his brother, senior Ke’Shawn Huguely, ended a Trotwood drive with a 13-yard rushing touchdown. Tied at seven, Trotwood took possession at its 41 yard line with just under 6 minutes remaining.
