With the playoffs underway, it shouldn't be a shocker to learn that this has been a helter-skelter week in the power rankings. Among the games was a one-point thriller between Pickerington Central and Hilliard Bradley.
The Avon offense has been a force to be reckoned with this season, and last week was no different. It picked up a decisive 'W' against Springfield, finishing up at 49 - 14. The MaxPreps rankings were spot on as they projected Avon as the clear winner. Thanks to its success, Avon cracked into the power rankings and now occupies the 19th spot.
