OHSAA stays at 816 schools

COLUMBUS — The Ohio High School Athletic Association Board of Directors approved the updated OHSAA membership list, which currently stands at 816 high schools, the same as last year.

The junior high schools fell to 760, which the OHSAA said is due to a number of schools dropping official school teams this year and deciding not to remain OHSAA members.

Ohio is the fourth-largest state for high school sports participation behind California, Texas and New York.

Mahomes against Bengals

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — Patrick Mahomes picked up where he left off from his record-breaking debut as a starter, marching the Kansas City Chiefs downfield for a first-quarter touchdown in what became a 38-17 preseason victory over the Cincinnati Bengals on Saturday night. Mahomes did a bit of everything on the only series by the Chiefs’ first-team offense, going 4 for 4 for 66 yards while adding a 10-yard scramble and inducing an an offside penalty.

Andy Dalton was nearly as sharp for Cincinnati, going 7 of 9 for 80 yards while leading his team on a 14-play, 75-yard touchdown march to open the game. Dalton did it without the services of injured wide receiver A.J. Green or his top two running backs, Joe Mixon and Giovani Bernard.
