OH SAYS NO TO FOX'S H.S. FOOTBALL NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIP
Published April 22, 1999
OH will not allow any of its teams to compete in the high school football national championship proposed by Fox Sports Net and Student Sports Inc. for December 2000, according to John Seaburn of the AKRON BEACON JOURNAL. OH High School Athletic Association (OHSAA) Dir of PR Bob Goldring said the issue of that game "has been discussed" before at national conventions, but the OHSAA feels that "the time is not right to get involved in something like that." In addition, OHSAA rules prohibit OH teams from competing in games after the completion of the state playoffs. More Goldring: "It seems odd that the backers of this proposed national championship game wouldn't float their idea past some state high school associations to see if there's support for it" (AKRON BEACON JOURNAL, 4/22).
