BCSN 20th Anniversary

In 2024, BCSN will be the home for LOCAL sports for 20 years and we plan to celebrate all year long!

It all began on January 7, 2004, inside the gym of Owens Community College, our first BCSN broadcast. Twenty years later we are thriving. We’ve expanded our production capacity and even have a Podcast!

Our cameras have captured monumental wins and must-see plays that showcase the best our area has to offer.

We are proud to deliver award-winning content to viewers through live game broadcasts, studio-based programming, and special interviews.

By sharing the sights, sounds, and stories of the players, coaches, and teams we make a connection with our community, a community we are honored to serve.

The Top 20 Female and Top 20 Males Athletes of the BCSN Era (2004-2024) were voted on by a 10-member committee of unbiased BCSN reporters, anchors, producers, broadcasters, analysts, and commentators. Each athlete must have played at least one game on BCSN and played for a high school in the BCSN viewing area (Toledo and surrounding suburbs) which primarily consists of specified schools in the current Toledo City League, Northern Lakes League, Toledo Area Athletic Conference, Catholic High School League, and the Northern Buckeye Conference.

For 20 years BCSN has prided itself on showcasing ALL of the area’s athletes and ALL of the sports, not just future and or current players who have successfully made it to the NFL, NBA, MLB, MLS, or NWSL. The Top Athletes list reflects that approach.

The voting was based on a variety of factors including:

  • Outstanding performances on the field or court
  • Awards, accomplishments, and records at the high school, college, and/or professional levels
  • The athlete’s role on significant team achievements (league, district, regional, state, national, world, and/or professional championships)
  • The totality of an athlete’s body of work over the entire course of his or her athletic career
  • When applicable, factoring in an athlete who played multiple sports
  • Balancing representation of more popular, and widely consumed sports (football, basketball, baseball, softball) and less popular sports (golf, tennis, track & field, wrestling, etc)
