COLUMBUS -- 9th-year Hartley head football coach Brad Burchfield calls the matchup in the Div. 4 state title game "Blue Bloods."

Two great programs collide again Friday at 3 pm. Hartley beat Steubenville last season to win their second state championship in five years.

The 12-2 Hawks are the lone Central Ohio team that will play during championship weekend in the legendary Ohio Stadium.

"No story about high school football in this state is complete without the two (Steubenville) of us," Burchfield told ABC-6 on Tuesday.
