Though it's a little ways down the road, come this August, high school football in Ohio will expand from six divisions to seven.  Giving more teams a shot at the post season.  The last time the OHSAA expanded the football playoffs was 1994, going from five to six divisions, then going from the top four in each region to the top eight in 1999. 

Tim Stried with the OHSAA says that for the most part feedback from coaches has been positive.  Stried also stated the top 72 schjools enrollment wise will make up Division I, around 600 boys and up, which means Madison (395) and Mansfield Senior (435) will remain Division II.  The 2013 season will also begin one week later than last season with week one set for Friday, August 30th.  The first weekend of the playoffs will be Friday, November 8th.

The addition of a seventh division will add 32 more schools to the OHSAA football playoffs.  With the extra division, the state finals will be Thursday, Friday and Saturday December 5th, 6th and 7th in Canton and Massillon.  In 2014, the state football finals will be played in Ohio Stadium in Columbus.
