I don’t know why they are spending that kind of money. They only win a couple games a yr. they need find a coach and keep their players there instead of transferring

Minford is looking to break ground and be ready for the upcoming season.
Is Minford switching to turf?
That is their plans. They are fund raising. Last I heard they were almost half way there

Because our kids deserve a top notch, updated facility as much as anyone else. God Bless.

Yes the kids do deserve a top notch facility. It will be so nice to have some room. And a nice facility.

I've seen Piketon's new field, any pictures of Northwest's or Green's?

I heard that Piketon's field has some issues and parts of it are like walking on a sponge.

Don't know who did it or anything about them, or anything about the issues they are having, but you couldn't get a better top notch crew than the Company Waverly got to do theirs 4 years ago. 95% of the work and success of the field is what you don't see under the surface.....

Agreed. Imagine if they spent as much effort and money in trying to lure a good coach or top assistant to come in and turn the program around. I guess flashy new uniforms and a new field are more important to some schools. But hey, at least they will look good when they get beat 50-7 every friday night.

Piketons field is fine, walked on it today with others to go over maintenance and cleaning of the field. Track being put down real soon, followed by visitors bleachers. Field house construction will start soon.

You're right Otto,if the program struggles make the kids use outdated facilities and crappy equipment. Try making some sense when you open your mouth.

It's hilarious that people like you think that natural grass fields are "outdated". Last I checked 19 NFL teams still play on natural grass. You should go tell them that they're holding their teams back.

All i'm saying is, building the program is more important than having all the bells and whistles. But if you want to spend money, an updated weight room has more of an impact on wins than a shiny new field.

I didn't say anything about grass fields being outdated, I'm aware the NFL uses it, I have cable. My point was your crappy remarks about Northwest. Kids deserve nice facilities and equipment, doesn't matter what shape the program is in.

And they are getting an updated weight room and indoor practice facility for all sports.

Correct. New weight room, locker rooms for football, soccer and track and field. Indoor turfed practice area with retractable batting cages. Turf field along with new press box and scoreboard. Extending home stands and including handicap accessible seating. Adding visitor stands. New ticket booth, concession and restrooms. Walk way to visitor side. Retaining wall on inside of front straight of track.

The problem is, you didn't speak the truth. I think that was the point. It's not just a field, but an overall commitment, including a weight room. I too, could care less what you think.

Each and every one of those 19 NFL franchises have the ability and means (the capital) to make a consistent, multi-seasonal and even weekly commitment toward the preservation, well-keeping and integrity of their natural grass playing surface.

The average southern Ohio district, or really any public school district in general, on the other hand does not. Combine that with the fact many districts utilize their football fields for multiple various purposes, it serves to make sense that school districts at least consider the prospect of going to artificial turf.

The fact that anyone would key board warrior a negative response to facility upgrades for a local team tells you all you need to know about them. High and mighty, ignorant, or both. And yes, the versatility of the turf is a beautiful thing.

It tells me something when someone honestly believes that getting a turf field makes their team better at football. You can worship turf all you want, but it won't get you more wins or into the playoffs. It's just keeping up with the Joneses. Getting something because another school got it. Just don't get upset when a team that plays on a grass field shows up and embarrasses your team on it's fancy new field.

No one thinks getting turf will make their team better. Almost everyone agrees that if a school wants to upgrade their facilities, then that is nothing but a good thing for the kids and the community.
Apparently your theory is that you can't have nice facilities if you don't win......

I don't think this poster is even from Northwest. They're glad to see Northwest is getting new facilities. The up grades is for all sports. They will be putting in new softball fields in the future also.
The kids are really excited about the upgrades that are taking place .

No he's not. And anyone who thinks it's negative is a numb nut. Just because we're not a certain level yet doesn't mean we can't have nice things. Get lost.
