December 3, 2013 – The Mentor High School football team is heading to the biggest game of the season—the Division 1 State Championship this Saturday at Canton Fawcett Stadium! The game kicks off at 3:00 p.m. with our Fighting Cardinals playing Cincinnati Archbishop Moeller. The Cards became Regional Champions by defeating St. Ed’s 41-38 last Saturday in the State Semifinal game.


Let’s fill the stands at Saturday’s State Championship game with Cardinals fans! Ticket sales begin Wednesday, December 4 at 8:00 a.m. They are $8 presale or $10 at the gate, and all tickets are reserved seating. You can look at a stadium map and pick out available seats at the MHS Athletic Office (please enter through the gymnasium lobby) during the following times:

Wednesday: 8:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m.

Thursday: 8:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m. & 5:00 – 7:00 p.m.

Spirit Tour

Mentor Schools will host a spirit tour sendoff on Friday morning for the football team, cheerleaders and several band members. The group will divide so the spirit tour will have time to visit all of our buildings. Our younger students might enjoy dressing in their favorite Cardinals gear to root for the team during the send-off on Friday.

Tee Shirts

The Redline Club will be selling State Finals apparel beginning Wednesday outside the Athletic Office at MHS. Prices are $10 for a tee shirt, $15 for a long-sleeved tee shirt and $25 for a hoodie until supplies are gone! Here is the shirt design: 

Community Support

The Mentor Police Department will escort the team out of town Saturday morning at 11:15, and we’re hoping to have Cardinals fans line the route (11ish) to cheer for our team! That would be from the stadium (near the one way exit close to the Hopkins/Market intersection) onto Market Street all the way to Center Street. (Past Outback, Honda, Big Lots etc.)

Mentor Lights It Up
Mentor residents and businesses: Leave your lights on Friday into Saturday – or a light on-- to show support for the team! Go Cards!
