Fri Oct. 12 at Columbia Hickman Lost by Forfeit
     Chillicothe Coaches and team doctors stated there were too many injuries to starting players, and were worried about the safety of younger players who would be forced to start against a large Class 5A school, so Chillicothe cancelled the game on Monday Oct 8th. The move drew state-wide attention in the media. Chillicothe considers this as a cancellation, while Columbia Hickman considers this a Chillicothe forfeit.
