MASSILLON, Ohio -- Extra security was added at Paul Brown Tiger Stadium for this year's Massillon vs. Steubenville game.

Last year, the schools' game at Steubenville provided for a hostile environment, and this year added controversy follows that team after one of its players were allowed to return following a 2013 conviction in a rape case.

The schools' game is the Friday Night Touchdown Game of the Week. It's expected to draw a big crowd.

But Massillon's superintendent said the school will have extra security whenever they have large turnouts.

"We don't let anything negative happen," said Supt. Richard Goodright. "You know, no negative cheers or signs or behaviors that would detract from the game, because it is really about the game and the kids on the field."

Goodright said Massillon will show Steubenville a warm welcome and hope they have a good experience.
