In Week 15, seven championships will be decided on the field – and one among the the ThisWeekSPORTS.com panel.
Patrick Dolan, Neil Thompson and Jarrod Ulrey are tied heading into the final week of the season, and this battle looks to be as interesting as those being played in Canton.
Thompson and Dolan differ on two picks; Thompson and Ulrey differ on two; and Dolan and Ulrey differ on four.
To bring the entire panel into the conversation, no picks were unanimous picks, but a few were close.
Andy Resnik was the lone wolf in picking Lakewood St. Edward to beat Cincinnati Colerain, and Brad Emerine was the only one to pick Girard to topple Cincinnati Wyoming.
Eric Frantz and Ulrey were the only ones to pick Orrville to beat central Ohio’s only finalist, Johnstown.
The games dividing the staff the most were eight who picked Chagrin Falls Kenston to beat Kettering Alter and 10 who picked Maria Stein Marion Local to win another title over Kirtland.
