LOREN JAMES – Basketball Announcer
On Saturday night, Northmont Athletics honored long time basketball announcer Loren James who passed away on September 12th, 2017. Loren was the voice of the Northmont boys Basketball teams for 26 years from 1989 to 2016. Loren was able to use his voice to carry on a great tradition of Northmont boys basketball. Loren was awarded the OHSAA State Award in 2016 for his years of service to Northmont. He was also a freshman baseball coach for 5 years. Upon his passing, Loren’s wish was to provide uniforms for the baseball teams. Through many generous donations we have raised over $4,000.00.
Accepting this honor for Loren is his Family: His wife of 52 years Donna, his daughter Jodi Tucker and her husband Mike, his sons Darren and Trevor and his wife Sara. We would like to present the family with this plaque made out of the old gym floor where Loren announced games. We also have a plaque that will remain permanently at the scorers table in Loren’s memory.
Northmont Athletics would like to recognize Loren and thank all of his family for all that he has done over the years for Northmont Athletics and the Northmont community.
