1.9 million dollar face-lift for Cushman Field

Grand Forks, ND (WDAZ Sports) - Concordia and Fargo Shanley both added brand new turf football fields in the last two years. You can now add Cushman Field in Grand Forks to that list.

The home field of Central and Red River recently got a 1.9 million dollar face-lift. Along with going from grass to turf, the track was also replaced and a new digital scoreboard and PA system added.

Vyrn Muir - Red River Head Football Coach: β€œIt's been quite the progress to see the finished product because back in the summer when they started here there were piles of dirt and big trenches dug. To see the finished product now looks pretty neat.”

Bill Lorenz - Central Head Football Coach: β€œI would say it's going to be one of the nicest fields in the state now. The turf is very bright and sticks out. The kids have driven by there too and they're excited to get on there and play.”
