COLUMBUS — The Ohio High School Athletic Association released its weekly football computer ratings on Tuesday and none of Preble County’s five teams nor Talawanda are among the top 12 in their respective regions this week.

Top eight schools from each region in the final report Oct. 30 will qualify for the playoffs.

The top 12 schools in each region are listed below by division and region with record and average points.

Preble Shawnee and Tri-County North are the highest rated teams in the area. Both teams still have an outside shot of qualifying for the playoffs, but most likely need to win out in addition to getting help from other teams.

The Arrows (4-3) are sitting just outside the top 12 in 13th in the Division V, Region 20 standings with 6.8643 points. Shawnee is scheduled to travel to winless Waynesville (0-7) on Friday.

North (4-3) is 13th in the Division VI, Region 24 rankings with 5.2929 points and will travel to Miami East (5-2) on Friday in a must-win situation.

Also in D-VI, Region 24, Twin Valley South (3-4) is 22nd with 2.6714 points. The Panthers are scheduled to host unbeaten Covington (7-0) on Friday. National Trail (2-5) ranks 25th with 1.0 points and is scheduled to host Bethel (4-3) this week.

In Division III, Region 12, Eaton (2-5) is 22nd with 4.3214 points. The Eagles will host Brookville (4-3) on Friday. Talawanda (1-6) is 25th with 1.9071 points. The Braves are scheduled to host Edgewood (5-2) this week.

Of the 716 OHSAA member schools playing varsity football this fall, the largest 72 schools are in Division I, while the remaining schools are divided equally in Divisions II through VII (approximately 108 schools in each division). The top eight teams in each region will qualify for the playoffs.
