Wayne vaults to No. 2 in state football poll

Wayne (4-0-1) vaulted to No. 2 in this week’s state Division I high school football poll. The Warriors trail only top-ranked Cincinnati Colerain (5-0), which drew all but three first-place votes. Last season Wayne defeated unbeaten Colerain 28-21 in a D-I state semifinal.

Coldwater (5-0) is the only area team to be ranked No. 1 (D-V). Marion Local (4-1) is No. 2 (D-VI) and Alter (5-0) No. 3 (D-IV).

Here’s how a panel of sports writers and broadcasters rates Ohio teams in the third weekly Associated Press poll, by OHSAA divisions, with won-lost record and total points (first-place votes):
