The Ohio High School Athletic Association released its second official weekly football computer ratings on Tuesday. The computer ratings are released every Tuesday leading up to the final report on Sunday, Oct. 23, when 448 schools – the top 16 in each region – will qualify for the playoffs.
There are 711 schools in this week’s 11-player football computer ratings. The 72 largest schools are in Division I, while the remaining schools are divided equally in Divisions II through VII (approximately 106 schools in each division).
The top 20 schools in each region are listed below by division and region with record and average points. The football page at OHSAA.org includes an explanation of how the ratings are calculated.
As expected, there were changes in the position for local teams after the latest ratings were announced on Tuesday. The Galion Tigers have a shot at post-season play depending on the results of their remaining contests, as do Colonel Crawford and Northmor High Schools:
Area teams and positions:
Galion (4-4): Ranked #11 in Division IV, Region 14 between Buckeye Valley and Shelby
Colonel Crawford (6-2): Ranked #8 in Division VI, Region 22 between Hopewell-Loudon and Castaila Margaretta
Crestline: Not ranked

The Galion Tigers host Marion Pleasant Friday at Unckrich Stadium.
