Welcome to the 2014 Barberton High School football season! We are very excited about the possibilities that exist as we enter the upcoming season. The BHS Football Program is led by BHS Alumni Tony Gotto. He returns to BHS and will help to lead the way, in returning the Magics back into a viable force in the football scene.

We are excited to announce the home schedule where the Magics will be playing eight games at Sharkey Stadium this fall. The football team opens at home on Friday September 5, 2014 against Springfield High School. This game will also be youth night and the Barberton All Sports Boosters will be holding their second annual “Magic Mayhem” at Barberton Middle School from 4:00- 6:00. On Friday September 12, 2014 the Magics will be hosting Alliance High School and we will be celebrating the accomplishments of the 1964 football team which compiled a record of 8-1 and will be celebrating their 50th anniversary. During week number 7, the Magics will be playing Canton Central Catholic High School and this will also be homecoming. Week ten has the BHS football team matching up against Northwest High School. This will be senior night where we introduce the 2014 fall sports athletes.
