Loveland, Ohio – This Loveland Tiger Homecoming was one for the history books! Although many locals pray to never have to orchestrate a “COVID-19” Homecoming again here at Loveland Magazine we felt as though we should still celebrate and document the memorable event for those who were not able to get a glimpse of what it was like.

Loveland High School and the Loveland Athletic Boosters tried their best to make the 2020 Homecoming Game as normal as possible despite COVID 19 restrictions that “Ruled Sovereign” over the evening that had no crowning of a Queen or King. Loveland’s Principal Peggy Johnson after the Homecoming event assured families, students, friends, and Tiger fans that she hopes to make up for students missing the traditional Homecoming experience and would like to hold the Homecoming Saturday night dance this winter if the pandemic restrictions ease.

Even though there wasn’t a tradition Homecoming Saturday night dance Loveland Magazine’s David Miller did catch the Tiger Band busting a move for a few seconds at the Homecoming game against Little Miami!

The “non-traditional” Homecoming  Parade consisted of cheerleaders and players escorted to the High School upon the red chariot of a local fire truck provided by the Loveland-Symmes Fire Department! Luckily we captured the impromptu Homecoming parade on video for you our loyal readers as it left Historic Downtown and crossed over the Little Miami River.

The tradition of delivering the game ball via helicopter did continue as Grand Marshall Otto Huber, the Loveland-Symmes Fire Chief, landed mid-field to hand off the ball to the officiating crew.

In the video below Loveland Magazine’s David Miller captured the Marching Band and Color Guard during the opening ceremony playing the fight song and the National Anthem. The video also includes some action clips from the game including the opening kick-off and the traditional pre-game fireworks as the Loveland Tigers ran onto the field!

The visiting Little Miami Panthers ruled the field of play, beating our Tigers 55-20.

Our Tigers traveled to Covington, Kentucky on Friday, September 25th to play the Holmes Bulldogs. Loveland grabbed their first win of the season, 48-14! The Tigers are now 1-3 overall and 0-3 in the ECC. The Loveland Football team will play again on Friday, October 2nd at Kings at 7 p.m.
