COLUMBUS, Ohio – The Ohio High School Athletic Association has announced how the football regional champions will be paired in four of the OHSAA’s seven divisions for next week’s state semifinals.

However, three of the divisions (II, IV and V) cannot be determined until after the regional championships have been decided.
