Best Ohio High School Football Team Ever?

Over in the Buckeye Takeover Thread on Mike Doss, I mentioned how his 1997 high school team, Canton McKinley, could be considered one of the best ever in Ohio.  I watched them play against St. Ignatius when they were ranked #1 and #4 in the country, and I have never seen a high school game that even compares from a talent perspective.  

The team consisted of 3 Ohio State commits (Doss, Jamar Martin, Kenny Peterson), 4 Kent State commits, 1 Indiana and 1 Kentucky.  The team went undefeated, beating a great St. Ignatius team twice, as well as Florida powerhouse St. Thomas Aquinas, Toledo St. Francis DeSales, Massillon Washington and Cincinnati Moeller in the state championship game.  They were also the USA Today #1 team in the country from the start of the season to the end.

Are the 1997 Canton McKinley Bulldogs the best high school team ever in the state of Ohio?  If not, who do you got?   What are some other great high school teams from Ohio?
