It’s not every year that a north central Ohio football squad makes the state final four by winning its regional final contest. In fact, it rarely happens.

That makes this year doubly special, as two Richland County teams are playing state semifinal games this week. Here are the current details; we will be updating this information as the playoff dates near and this post will remain on the 1812Blockhouse main page.

Before sharing the information below, we have to say — Go Tygers! Go Cubs!
