CLEVELAND — Scroll down to vote in our poll!
There are only two weeks left in Ohio's high school football regular season, and teams across the Cleveland-Akron-Canton area are feeling the pressure.
While this year's playoff expansion makes it a little easier to reach the postseason, seeding remains extremely important, for with an extra round now on the schedule the top contenders want the easiest road possible for a potential state championship. That factor is ever present in this week's options for the WKYC.com High School Football Game of the Week, which feature current top seeds from a combined five divisions.
Your choices feature two of Northeast Ohio's perennial parochial school powers as well as some great small-school matchups. They are:
- Walsh Jesuit (6-2) vs. Padua Franciscan (7-1)
- Columbia (8-0) vs. Keystone (6-1)
- Lutheran West (7-1) vs. Independence (7-1)
You can cast your ballots either at this link or in the survey below, and one lucky participant will win a free meal from Chick-fil-A!
The poll runs through 12:30 p.m. this Wednesday, with 3News' Dave "Dino" DeNatale and Tyler Carey announcing the winner later that day on their weekly high school preview show. Dino will then call that game live Friday night via audio stream beginning on WKYC.com, the WKYC app, and the WKYC Facebook and YouTube pages, with video highlights being featured on that evening's edition of "What's Next" at 11 p.m. as well as on our website.
Best of luck to all the teams involved, and have fun voting! Be sure to spread the word!!
