Trimble High School quarterback Konnor Standley runs against Western Reserve in the state semifinal football game on Nov. 30, 2013 at St. Clairsville. The Tomcats won 14-10 and advanced to their first state championship game.

A date with the two-time defending D-VI state champion Marion Local waits just around the corner for Trimble. The Tomcats will be fighting for their first state title in school history when they take on the Flyers on Saturday, Dec. 7. at Massillon Paul Brown Tiger Stadium.

The D-VII bout will be televised and can be watched on FSN/SportsTime Ohio (STO). The game will be shown on Time Warner Cable (TWC) channel 99 in southwest Ohio. The OHSAA Radio Network will broadcast the game as well.
