1972 - Not sure how to classify this one...we played Lancaster Reemelin and won 46-0. From my own research, it appears this was a reform school for juvenile offenders. It was founded in 1858 as the Ohio Reform School and Charles Reemelin was their first director. It was renamed the Boys Industrial School in 1884, then the Fairfield School for Boys in 1964. It was never referred to as Lancaster Reemelin in the research I found.

That's it. Forty-three games against private schools (and one in question). 18 wins, 21 losses and 3 ties.
Playoff record of 6 wins and 7 losses.
Most points scored was 54 in the 1994 state semi-final win over Cleveland Benedictine, most points given up was the 50 allowed in the 2006 regional final against Mooney.
Largest margin of victory was 31 in the 1998 regular season win over CCC.
Most games against one school has been against Canton Central Catholic, 17 games....6 wins and 11 losses.
We haven't played a private school in the regular season since 1999...and I'm guessing as long as we belong to a conference, that should stay that way.
