When five Chicago-area Catholic high schools (Marist, Brother Rice, St. Patrick, St. Rita and Mount Carmel) matched up to play their season openers on Soldier Field in Chicago August 28, Loras was literally front and center.
Thanks to the help of alumni Timothy LeFevour (’78), Soldier Field general manager, and James McHugh, C.P.A. (’75), a video about the College was featured on the stadium’s jumbotron at half-time. The video highlighted five Loras students, all alumni of a Chicago-area Catholic high school: Mark Tilkes (’17), of Evergreen Park, Brother Rice; Kelsey Callahan (’16), of Palos Heights, Marist; Robert Brophy (’17), of Chicago, Mt. Carmel; Ryan Young (’18), of Chicago, St. Patrick’s; and Jennifer Medina (’17), of Chicago, Marist.
