LOVELAND, OH (August 28, 2020) – Fall football has finally arrived here in Loveland as the LHS Tigers will host the Turpin Spartans on the gridiron at Tiger Stadium.

The Tigers will kick off the season at 7 p.m. against ECC rival Turpin High School Spartans. The long awaited season that seemed to be on again, off again, and finally on again  due to the pandemic guidelines will see limited fan access in the stadiums. 

Ohio Governor Mike DeWine and the Ohio High School Athletic Association have set forth guidlines for in-person fans. As a result, only parents of Loveland Football players will be allowed in the stands for the game. The LHS Athletic Boosters and the school athletic department have worked together to set-up livestreaming of the games for students and fans to enjoy the action live. 

Got to for more. 

With Sincere Loveland Beacon Apologies to ALL Members of the LHS Marching Band, please note: 

The Tiger Marching Band will take the field tonight as well. And yes, Band Parents will be in the stands to see their students perform. 

At one of the early band practices, on a hot summer day with a lot of unknowns, band director Mr. Miller simply described the band as “Awesome” and “Excited to be out on the field practicing getting ready for the Marching Band Season they hope for.”
