(8-11-20) While Ohio high school athletic conferences are hastily putting together schedules after the OHSAA made changes to the 2020 football season…one Stateline area school, Lima Central Catholic (LCC) is hoping fill their independent status dates.
Yesterday the Midwest Athletic Conference released its revised schedules, all were conference games, not one non-conference game. Hard to blame the MAC or any AD for going that route.
But for LCC they will now have to find six schools who will not play an entire six game conference schedule or find other independents around the state, which could mean some long road trips.
John Schnieders, LCC Athletic Director
It is certainly not a desirable scenario for us. We are inquiring about a number of possible options with conferences and individual schools. We will do whatever it takes to provide our student-athletes the opportunity to compete assuming we get the green light to play football games this fall.
NOTE: Added after this story first posted – BVC Schedule
NOTE: After story was posted Tinora was scheduled to travel to Lima to play LCC On 8-28, shortly after that …Tinora now has an open date on Wk1, LCC will now play as the 12th member in the BVC to fill those open dates
- The T-Birds will play at Licking Valley week 2 and at Cambridge week 4 (at 4pm on Sat 9/19).
After week six of the season is complete, all Ohio schools will be eligible for the playoffs, Week 7 is the only week the Thunderbirds know they are guaranteed a game at this time.
Schools that are eliminated from the playoffs may continue to schedule regular-season games up until November 14.
Now every school in Ohio is waiting for Governor DeWine to give the okie dokie…that is the wild card in all of this.
Yesterday Lt. Governor Husted did seem to give a thumbs up on a possible football season –
