Our History

The Hoover Sideliners were formed in 1958 as a booster club for the Hoover High School athletic teams. The early meetings were held at Jack Geib's Viking Barber Shop. The organizers and early leaders were pillars of the community; men like Dr. T. K. Harris, Jim Hartong, Germaine Swanson, Ralph Freday and Jack Geib.  

Our organization has steadily progressed from that humble beginning. Today, we offer support to all Hoover High School student organizations – covering academics, arts and athletic programs. The primary source of funding for the Sideliners is donations from North Canton area residents and businesses that are recognized in the varsity football game program.  Individuals making donations are recognized as patrons of the Hoover Sideliners in the program, while businesses purchase ads that are featured in the program. 

The wonderful people of our community have faithfully supported us - even during the most difficult economic conditions. The Sideliners have acted as good stewards for these contributions and have tried to make sure every student at Hoover High School has the opportunity to have the best possible educational experience.  We look forward to continuing to provide this support to the students for many years to come.

Sideliner Projects


Check out some of the projects the Sideliners are involved in all over town:

Don Hertler Sr. Field at Memorial Stadium FieldTurf

The Sideliners and several other organizations are instrumental in obtaining and maintaining the FieldTurf playing surface at Memorial Stadium.  Used for more than just football, several other sports and community activities benefit from the durable playing surface.




LED Board at Memorial Stadium

Boasting the largest, brightest view-able screen in North Canton, the LED board at Memorial Stadium provides full-color interaction of on-field events and a great place to advertise.

Locker Room at Memorial Stadium

The Sideliners have helped maintain and advance the locker room and training facilities at Memorial Stadium.  Providing safe, effective, and modern facilities to coaches, trainers, and players helps ensure success.



Please support these fine sponsors who support North Canton Hoover academics, arts, and athletics. Their kindness and generosity to the community helps fund numerous Sideliner projects.
