The Canton Central Catholic High School football team was crowned Division V’s poll state champions by the Associated Press at the end of a perfect 10-0 regular season.

Four playoff wins later, the Crusaders are set to play in the state title game on Saturday night to try and win the championship that is decided on the field.

Saturday’s title tilt against Coldwater (13-1) will mark CCC’s third appearance in a gridiron state championship contest. In the previous two title bouts – in 1988 and 2000 – the Crusaders came away victorious and earned the championship hardware.

First-year CCC head coach Jeff Lindesmith participated in a teleconference with media members from across the state on Monday. Play the embedded audio file below to hear what he had to say about his Crusaders and the upcoming championship game.

Kickoff is set for 8 p.m. at Ohio Stadium in Columbus.
