As of right now, there isn’t an official site for the 2018 Ohio high school football state championship games, but according to WCPO.com, the Ohio State High School Athletic Association is getting closer to keeping the games in Canton.

According to the television station, OHSAA Executive Director Dr. Dan Ross told the Ohio Prep Sportswriters Association that the state is currently working on a contract that would have the state finals at Tom Benson Hall of Fame Stadium for a second straight year.

The state championships were played in Canton from 1990 through 2013 and then again last season. From 2014 through 2016, the finals were held in Ohio Stadium in Columbus.
