(7-6-21) Another year, another football season of being an independent at Lima Central Catholic (LCC). Indiana has implemented a ‘success factor’ for teams that win at different levels of the playoffs…so many titles moves you up a class. It seems that some local conferences have initiated their own success factor and that is why LCC is not being considered for a spot in a local conference.

While every Ohio high school football team faced pandemic issues, LCC faced several unexpected bumps in the road in 2020 including a scheduling glitch with the Blanchard Valley Conference (BVC).

A look at the 2021 Schedule

The first three games will be against area teams that will give a league-type atmosphere…Shawnee from the Western Buckeye League, Delphos St. John’s from the Midwest Athletic Conference and Spencerville from the Northwest Conference.

The next six games see the T-Birds playing schools outside the region, Huron, Willard, Worthington Christian, Fort Frye, Licking Valley and Galion.

To end the season g the T-Birds will play Ft. Loramie, who became an independent this season.
