Coffman, Olentangy, Tri-Valley Climb AP Rankings

COLUMBUS, Ohio - The Ohio Capital Conference is well represented in the second Associated Press High School State Poll of the season. Fresh off a 24-9 win over Hilliard Davidson, Dublin Coffman climbed three spots in Division I into a 5th place tie with OCC foe Pickerington Central. Fellow unbeaten Westerville Central (4-0) garnered enough votes to move into 16th place in D-I. 

In Divison II, Olentangy picked up three first place votes, to move into 5th place. The 4-0 Braves have domainated opponents to start the season, outscoring them on average by 28.5 points per game. 

Three-time MVL champion Tri-Valley also slides into the top ten after its 35-0 win over Zanesville last week. The Dawgs have only allowed 13 points through 4 games, while each of those games have been played with a running clock in the second half. 

Listed below are the complete rankings for all seven divisions as voted on by a state panel of sports writers and broadcasters in the second weekly Associated Press poll of 2014. Won-lost records are listed as well as total points received during voting (first-place votes in parentheses).
