New Richmond was the champion of the Southern Buckeye Conference American Division football race and earned the best overall regular season record of any varsity grid squad among Clermont County high schools.
Dan Scholz, head coach of the Lions said, “I’m extremely proud of the effort. We ended the season with an eight-game winning streak. That says a lot about our senior leadership and our captains.
“We were disappointed by just missing making the state playoffs, but we definitely represented New Richmond football very well.
“The kids bought into the program. I’m very proud of their work ethic. They did the work it took for us to have our fifth winning season in a row. In the league we’ve lost just two games in four years.
“I’m so proud of what we have been able to do. I’m proud of our staff and the tremendous work they do and what we all do together.”
