Northwest Bearcats

Loch-O'Rourke Family Center



The Loch-O'Rourke Family Center is home to the national champion football and cheerleading trophies and is a comfortable place for families to gather before, during and after football games.


The Loch-O'Rourke Family Center was first opened to the public on Saturday, Sept. 10, 2005, during the first home game of the season and the day of the Centennial Kickoff celebrations at Northwest. As it is appropriate for a family to welcome fellow Bearcats to the stadium, Bill and Jessica Loch express their appreciation and respect for their parents, Betty and Robert E. Loch, Sr., and Clem and Laurel O'Rourke, who instilled the value of education, provided a means for their children's success, and stressed compassion for others, by naming the Loch-O'Rourke Family Center. Located on the Mezzanine Level of Bearcat Stadium, the Loch-O'Rourke Family Center is dedicated to all families and provides a wonderful tribute to Northwest's national championship football program. In 2010, the Center's display was remodeled to include the 2009 National Football Championship trophy and the 2010 Cheerleading National Championship trophy.
