In a continuing effort to upgrade the W.B. Adams stadium area, Ferrum College has dismantled it's football pressbox, in order to make room for a new and modern facility.
This new pressbox will be constructed by Mod U Kraf of Rocky Mount, Va. The same company that built Dyer and Clark residence halls.
This is a much needed development, and will only enhance the press and broadcast facilities. I was in the press box a couple of years ago. and the need for the upgrade was apparent. The press box in place could no longer accomodate the demand of press coverage, broadcast and announcer needs, nor those of statisticians....not comfortably anyway. It, like the other pressbox, will also house the concession operation.
Look for the new pressbox to be completed well ahead of the first home game for the Panthers on September 14th.
