McDowell is back in District 10 for the next two years but that hasn’t stopped the Trojans from putting together another loaded schedule. McDowell has four impressive non-region games and should be tested throughout the season. Here is a look at their schedule with one open date in Week 3. The Trojans open with Ohio-power Mentor before immediately beginning region play at General McLane. The toughest stretch of the season comes in late September into October. McDowell will face St. Ignatius and St. Edward back-to-back before road games at Cathedral Prep and Cardinal Mooney. The Trojans will celebrate Homecoming at its Sept. 28 game against St. Edward and Senior Night on Nov. 2 against Central Tech.
