Cincinnati Moeller Brings Home Eighth State Title
Congratulations to the Moeller High School football team for winning the Division I state championship on Saturday. The win gave the Cincinnati, OH, program its eighth state football championship in school history. The Crusaders last played for a state title in 1997 and last won it back in 1985. The victory was hard fought and showed the perseverence of this tough Crusader team. Like many championship teams, this team was powered by its defense. The stingy Crusader defense forced two turnovers and held a Toledo Whitmer team averaging 44 points a game to only 12. Also like many championship teams, these Crusaders faced tough times on the road to their title. Moeller had a rough patch earlier this season, losing three games in a five game stretch. Heading into the playoffs, the Crusaders were not even ranked in the final AP poll. Normally, distractions like this can bring a team down. This Moeller team was different. They stuck together and continued to play as a team. We at McKenzie & Snyder are proud of our local Cincinnati championship team. Congratulations Moeller!
