2021 Preseason All-State Teams - Division IV

Ohio is loaded with talent from all over the Buckeye state and that is most definitely evident within the Division IV list. Below you will find 60 players listed within the 1st/2nd teams along with a PDF that includes 2019 spring stats as well as an extensive Honorable Mention list within THIS PDF.

The list is formed based on a multitude of factors, some weighted more than others. The factors include 2019 performance, improvement shown at summer/winter showcases, 2021 projection, coaches recommendations, strength of competition, team performance, etc.

We at PBR Ohio would like to congratulate all that made the list. As you can see, this is a comprehensive list that we put in numerous hours of work to complete. We hope you all enjoy the list and have outstanding spring campaigns. Just know that this preseason list has no barrings on the All-State Teams that will be released after the season, as that is all based on success on the field this season. Good luck to all the teams. Let's make 2021 the best year we can!
