Junior Varsity Assistant Coach
Coach Lovelace is a 1987 graduate of John Glenn High School. He was on the first team in John Glenn history to make it to the state semi-finals in football. He played at the tight-end position.
After his senior year, he had the opportunity to attend The University of Wisconsin on a track scholarship, but instead chose to attend The University of Toledo on a full athletic scholarship. He was recruited as a tight-end, but quickly put on a lot of weight and was moved to the left offensive tackle position.
