BATH TOWNSHIP, Ohio (WOIO) - Revere High School football practice is canceled while school officials investigate what happened during this week’s football camp at Heidelberg College.

According to Revere school officials, they are investigating alleged inadequate supervision of students by the Revere High School football coaching staff while at the college.

Heidelberg College officials said the Revere football team was merely using their facility. Heidelberg staff did not operate the camp.

Revere school officials said no students were injured, but a “lapse in appropriate supervision” will be investigated before they continue with routine practice schedules and related activities.

The Revere youth football camp scheduled from June 17-June 20 has also been canceled.

“We regret that these cancellations are needed,” Revere Superintendent Matthew Montgomery said. “However, we take the safety of our students very seriously. We appreciate your patience as we work through this matter and apologize for the inconvenience.”
