Ohio Editor in Chief/NW Scout

With the amount of talent in the Buckeye State, choosing a select number for All-State teams is not an easy task. That said, it is a joy to be able to see this great talent at events throughout the year, be able to comb through our database and get information from around that state from coaches as well as scouts. 

Being able to see so much talent live while also getting information from around the state gives us at PBR Ohio solid information when deciding who has made the All-State teams.

Below you have the Preseason All-State Teams, along with these, be on the lookout for the Preseason Team Power Rankings that will be released on Monday the 27th.

If you see any mistake, whether that be spelling error, a wrong graduation year, a transfer, or whatever it may be, please send an email to hefflinger@prepbaseballreport.com so we can get it corrected.
