Sycamore High School students will honor military members and first responders during the Aviators’ home football game tonight as the nation pauses to remember September 11. Several unique tributes, including a Warbird flyover, have been planned for the game versus Trotwood Madison High School.
A moment of silence will be held two minutes prior to kickoff at 7 p.m. at Sycamore Stadium at Coach Bud Acus Alumni Field. Sycamore High School junior Elsa Benson will sing the National Anthem a capella. One hundred student volunteers will unfurl a 100- by 50-yard flag across the field in a salute to military personnel. The momentous flag is being provided by the Tri-State Warbird Museum.
The Cincinnati Warbirds EAA Chapter Squadron 18 will flyover during the first quarter, at approximately 7:15 p.m., weather permitting. Military representatives will have a booth set up prior to game time with a Humvee, sniper suits and other equipment. The student section will be sporting patriotic gear.
