Good luck to Mark Henniger and the Massillon Jackson Polar Bears as they play in tonight's Division I State Championship game against tradition rich Cincinnati Moeller. The game will start at 8:30 p.m. and will be televised live on SportsTime Ohio.
Jackson beat previously undefeated Gahanna Lincoln last night to advance to tonight's championship game. Michael Beaven covered the game.
Earlier in the week Henniger was named first team all-state in Division I.

"A lot of big colleges overlooked me. I want to make a name for my college instead of going to a school that already has a name. I’m not upset that I didn’t hear from big schools.
