Danny Loch, CNE gridiron great, inks with NCAA champ, Mt. Union

Danny Loch, Clermont Northeastern five-sport star, has signed a collegiate letter-of-intent to attend Mount Union College, Alliance, Ohio.

The well-rounded star lettered in four sports – football (three years), wrestling (two), track and field (three) and baseball (one). He also played reserve basketball.

This year on the gridiron he was a leader in Clermont County with more than 1,400 yards rushing (believed to be second-best in CNE history behind the legendary Charlie Varner who gained 1,631 yards his senior year of 1970-71). He was the Southern Buckeye Conference American Division’s Offensive Player of the Year and was Division II all-district and all-city. On the mat he was a district qualifier.

At Mount Union he plans to major in secondary education and later work on a degree in administration.
