About Us

Mason Crist

Ohio Varsity offers high school programs a unique and encompassing marketing opportunity.

We are high school sports information specialists, concentrating on the personal promotion of a school and an athletic program to satisfy the needs of parents, players, coaches, administrators and alumni in a way never approached prior in this – or any other – area of Ohio.

The unique website offers custom team pages with unparalleled content. This includes game stories for our member schools for each contest throughout the season, regardless of sport, as well as team rosters, schedules, results, conference standings, statistics, videos, photo galleries and news items. The services also feature unlimited social media contacts and accessibility to promote the student-athletes in any program – male or female in fall, winter or spring.

In addition, Ohio Varsity offers weekly game notes packages, sports information and media relation services, and media guides to further promote each student-athlete to the fan base and local media that the program wishes to reach.

Each team and each student-athlete is unique. OhioVarsity.com is unmatched in the background, resources, and credibility to guarantee the achievements of these young men and women are publicized and recognized year-round.

“Steve’s coverage, communication, relationships with the student-athletes and pictures were second to none. The players and parents absolutely loved being able to see updates @ohiovarsity on Twitter and at the Ohio Varsity website. I got incredible feedback from multiple people throughout the basketball season. He was always quick to respond to any of my updates or questions and made the process very easy on my end. We will no doubt be using him again as he made quite an impression on our coaching staff, players, parents, and fans!”

“This was the greatest change I made to our athletic department. The entire community won as a result of this change. We were able to connect with our athletes, teachers, family members and alumni. Our community support improved as a result. I think we competed harder and won more games due to our media and marketing change.”

~Ryan Peters, Beachwood High School Athletic Director

“My name is Luke Smrdel and I am the head baseball coach at Kirtland High School. Since 1999 I have been playing and coaching baseball in the Cleveland area, during which I have dealt with almost all of the local media sources. The one that truly stands out from the others is Ohio Varsity. With truly dedicated reporters, Ohio Varsity provides in-depth coverage of our team, conference, statistics and more. They make sure to include every player on our team at some point during the year, along with hundreds of high-quality pictures and complete box scores of every game. 

As a coach, it is easy to talk with their very knowledgeable staff during interviews! They are easy to reach and you are never put on hold. As a fan, I mainly read Ohio Varsity articles to keep up with our school’s other sports. They are quickly emailed at the conclusion of every game for all to enjoy!

With all of these great things Ohio varsity provides, most would assume there is nothing else they could do to make it better for the kids. But, they also happen to host the best local all-star game in the area as well.

The Ohio Varsity All-Star Classic, a fundraiser for The Wounded Warrior Project, is an awesome experience for everyone. I was fortunate enough to coach in this game in 2015, which was an honor in many ways. I was able to coach the areas best players and support our Armed Forces in the same day!”
