Hometown Showcase Premiers at OHSAA Football Championships

The R+L Carriers Hometown Showcase officially launched December 3, 4, and 5 during the Ohio High School Athletic Association’s (OHSAA) 44th Annual Football State Championships. Hosted by the Greater Columbus Sports Commission and The Ohio State University Department of Athletics, the three day event in Columbus, Ohio featured 14 Ohio high school football teams. The Hometown Showcase trailer was on display and provided family-friendly tailgating activities to fans, as well as information on career opportunities that exist within the shipping and logistics industry.

About OHSAA Football Championships

Over a three day, weekend long event, 7 high school football teams were crowned champions. Fans of each school participating in the championships had the opportunity to view the Hometown Showcase trailer, which was parked outside of Ohio Stadium. R+L Carriers employees and staff were on hand to guide fans through the interactive experience.

Inside the trailer, fans could watch up to 11 HD displays about the various career opportunities with R+L in the shipping industry, as well as see some of the additional work that R+L does in the community through the Lima Company Memorial and the R+L Carriers – New Orleans Bowl. Perhaps the most entertaining part of the trailer is a technologically advanced Bose Ride seating simulator, which give riders a chance to feel what it’s like to be behind the wheel with R+L Carriers. Fans also received a full tailgating experience, complete with games, activities and entertainment for all ages.

Hometown Showcase Championship Zone

Hometown Showcase proudly sponsored the OHSAA State Football Championship Zone. The Championship Zone was an interactive family fun area that was free and open to the public at the conclusion of each championship game. Fans of the winning teams were encouraged to meet in the Championship Zone for a special celebration of the team’s achievement. The marching band played, the cheerleaders cheered and the football team made their grand entrance. On behalf of the Hometown Showcase, each winning school was presented with a $1,000 student scholarship.
