We are Getting Very Close!

If you have not been following the progress of the Ferrum field renovations, you are missing the exciting times. After what has seemed to this impatient fan to be an eternity, It is finally coming down to the point of completion. In the picture below, you see the Ferrum athletics logo being applied. I know they sill have to put the hash marks on the field, but it's getting there! The rubber pellets and sand combination will also have to be spread. According to what I can find on the web, there are approximately 3 lbs. of rubber per square foot on a football field.....counting the end zones, that is 162,000 lbs. of rubber! Will it be ready for the Averett game? Just not sure yet, but it will be close.


  1. I hope this thing can get done for those Seniors to play on for Senior Day Saturday. They are working really hard to get it finished!
    Go panthers!

  2. It has just been announced that the game will be played at home!!!!!
