At first glance, there doesn’t seem to be much change in the Super 7 poll as Dublin Coffman and Pickerington North remain in the top two spots, although the Panthers did gain a first-place vote after dismantling Pickerington Central 37-0.
The rest of the poll, however, has undergone quite a change.
Hilliard Darby and Hartley each moved up a spot to No. 4 and No. 5, respectively.
Making the biggest move was Olentangy, which improved to 6-0 after a 55-7 victory over Franklin Heights. The Braves entered the poll at No. 3, replacing Westerville South, which fell to Dublin Scioto 42-35. In turn, the Irish moved to 5-1 and joined the poll at No. 6.
Westerville Central became the third OCC-Cardinal team in the poll at No. 7.
