(Toledo News Now) - Three northwest Ohio high school football teams are playing for state championship titles this weekend.

A big night is ahead for the Central Catholic football team as it prepares for the Division II state championship game. The school showed its support Friday morning with a pep rally to send off the team. Whitmer High School even sent over a banner to show its support.
