Holy Cross Football to Play Home Games at Thomas More in 30-Year Agreement
Holy Cross High School announced Wednesday a 30-year agreement to play home football games at Thomas More University.
The deal starts in the 2019 season.
A similar announcement was made in 2017, but included the caveat that the deal needed to be finalized by securing grant money.
“After twenty-one seasons the program has taken the next step toward stability,” said Bruce Kozerski, head football coach at Holy Cross, and a former Cincinnati Bengal. “Home field is a term that will no longer be just a phrase used on a season schedule but will take on a whole new meaning. We can begin new traditions, entertain our loyal fan base, and create new excitement in the program. It is not just a field - it is our home field and we look forward to the continued growth of our program and our relationship with TMU.”
Last season, the school’s varsity program played its home games at several different venues across Northern Kentucky, including Holmes High School and Scott High School.
“Thomas More is excited to partner with Holy Cross high school. Holy Cross is fellow diocesan school so it gives us great pleasure to partner with them and provide them with a home field for football,” said Terry Connor, athletics director at Thomas More.
The Holy Cross football program, which practices at Wysong Field at the Eva G. Farris Sports Complex in Latonia, last won a state championship in 2011. Varsity home games will be played at BB&T Field on the campus of Thomas More University. BB&T Field was constructed in 2008 and a new state-of-the-art track was added in 2009.
“Our students-athletes, coaches, and fans are excited to finally have a field to call home. BB&T Field is an outstanding facility and sits on one of the most beautiful campuses in Northern Kentucky. This is a huge step forward for our school and football program and we can’t thank the administrators at Thomas More enough for giving us this opportunity. The entire Holy Cross community is grateful,” said Anne Julian, athletic director at Holy Cross.
