The 2014 Football season kicks off Friday night, August 29, 2014. Several GWOC schools have exciting local rivalries scheduled, but none more exciting than the 2013 GWOC North Division Champion and OHSAA State Runners Up Trotwood Rams vs. the Springfield Wildcats. Coach Maurice Douglas led the Rams to four State Championship appearances including one title in 2011. As the new leader of the Springfield Wildcats, Coach Douglas hopes to lead the Wildcats down the same road. It will be quite an exciting game! Another exciting GWOC match-up is the Backyard Battle between the Xenia Buccaneers and the Beavercreek Beavers. The Mayors of Beavercreek and Xenia will be on hand to deliver the traveling trophy to the winning team. Make sure you get out and support your community on opening night. Go GWOC!
