Field Could be Completed Early Next Weekby Howard Hewitt • August 18, 2010
All indications are the Hollett Little Giant Football Field turf installation process could be completed by early next week.
Matt Sanchez, Field Turf project supervisor, said Wednesday he expects his crews to finish up early next week. The crew was working on detail work around the edges and sidelines Wednesday afternoon.
Sanchez said the large Wabash W is expected Friday. The lettering for each endzone is one of the biggest jobs yet to be completed.
While the crews put finishing touches on the new turf, Erik Raeburn and his coaching staff are starting the constuction process with the 2010 Little Giant Football team just across Jennison Street at the old baseball field.
Freshmen practice was Wednesday afternoon with upperclassmen practicing Wednesday morning.
