THE 'VICTORY' BELL
History of the rotating trophy between Canton McKinley and Massillon Washington football rivalry game
Canton Repository - Wednesday, November 13, 1957 (Page 44) ... Research provided by McKinley Alum, Michael T. George

LOCOMOTIVE BELL IS NEW TROPHY FOR GRID CLASSIC SUPERINTENDENTS APPROVED
The nations college football powers annually battle over trophies, an Old Oaken Bucket and Shillelaghs, but they will have nothing on Canton and Massillon. When McKinley’s Bulldogs and visiting Tigers square off in the 62nd game in the rivalry they'll be shooting for the first time for possession of a 50 year old bronze locomotive bell.
THE TROPHY will become a symbol of the classic. It has been approved by the respective superintendents of the schools, John Niederhauser of Canton and L. J. Smith of Massillon. Donor of the bell is the Wheeling and Lake Erie District of the Nickel Plate Railroad. The announcement was made by R. J. Snyder, assistant master mechanic for the road at Brewster. Mr. Snyder will present the bell to the two superintendents at Saturday's game. Each year it will be retained by the winning team for display in it's trophy case. Mr. Snyder said the bell was removed from engine 922, a steam locomotive retired after 2,000,000 miles of service. This particular engine was used exclusively for freight service and traveled the equivalent of 800 trips coast-to-coast or 80 times around the world.
The bell is being processed in Nickel Plate shops at Brewster and mounted so it will ring. It will be placed on a carriage for convenient transportation.

Year of Suspension for the Bulldogs by Ohio High School Athletic Association
O.H.S.A.A. Finds McKinley Guilty of Recruiting, Gets ‘Death Penalty’ as Pups Go Undefeated, Untied and Undressed
by Michael T. George
During the off season between 1960 and 1961 a couple of McKinley boosters were in the Portsmouth, Ohio area and had overheard a grumbling parent complain about the playing time that his sons were getting. After some discussion these boosters found the father a job in the Canton area. The players enrolled in McKinley for the 1961 season.
The Superintendent of the Portsmouth schools reported to the OHSAA that McKinley had "stolen" two of his "star players".
During the ensuing investigation the OHSAA determined that McKinley was in violation of the bylaw regarding "undue influence" and banned McKinley from inter-scholastic football for the 1962 season - "THE DEATH PENALITY".
McKinley’s position was similar to that of many schools today...That the school has no control over what boosters do.
McKinley exhausted all attempts to get the ruling reversed; including OHSAA appeal, Gubernatorial intervention, and an injunction that was taken all the way to the State Supreme Court.
The Ohio State Supreme Court's final ruling was that the OHSAA was private, independent organization and as a member McKinley was bound
to follow the rules and decisions of said organization.
Side notes...
Massillon had toyed with the idea of playing McKinley in the final game of the season regardless of the ruling by the OHSAA and was informed that any school doing so would face a similar penalty.
The two "recruited" players were not that good and didn't play much in the '61 season. (In the end what do boosters know about talent). The father turned on McKinley also for not playing his gifted sons.
McKinley played an intramural program that year and the Massillon band even came over and performed during the half time of one of the games.
The OHSAA also saw what effect that this had on the general population of the student body and really has gone out of its way to not hand out the 'death penalty' since.

Massillon Washington concluded the regular season at home against Canton Lincoln, winning 35-16 to finish 6-5-0.

The one 'new' school will retain the name, mascot and colors of the McKinley Bulldogs. The Hall of Fame Village works out an agreement to lease and rebuild Fawcett Stadium for a cost estimated at $80 million and will change the name to Tom Benson Hall of Fame Stadium as it will become the centerpiece of the new Hall of Fame Village (and estimated $500M venture). 
With the consolidation of Canton McKinley and Timken, McKinley becomes one of the largest schools for male enrollment in the state.

2016-present, OHSAA Board of Directors votes to return all 224 teams that qualify for the playoffs to the same format.  The top eight teams from each of the four regions qualify in six divisions, I (large school classification), II, III, IV, IV, V and VI and VII to play in region quarterfinal. 
Tigers are placed on a three-year probation period by the OHSAA for being found guilty of recruiting and breaking OHSAA Bylaws. The school must pay a $5000 fine and head coach Nate Moore is not permitted to coach the Tigers in any post season playoff games (should Massillon qualify).
#127 in the series was played before 15,216 fans at Tiger Stadium on Saturday, October 29, 2016
