The Ohio High School Athletic Association Board of Directors voted unanimously to expand the Ohio High School Athletic Association football playoffs from eight schools per region to 12 beginning in the 2021 season. The 9-0 affirmative vote, at their May meeting, was given to a recommendation from the OHSAA staff which was based on a proposal from the Ohio High School Football Coaches Association.

“We still have details to work out regarding the format and specific season dates, but this vote by the board gives us the green light to finalize those details for 2021,” said Beau Rugg, Senior Director of Officiating and Sport Management for the OHSAA and the Association’s football administrator. “We are thankful for the Board’s support on this proposal which will bring all the great things of playoff football to 112 additional schools and communities.”
