That field looks delicious! Our football field looked like that last year at the start of the season, but by the end of the year it looked like crap. We use the municipal field in New Ulm, MN, and it's used by 3 high school varsity football teams and 1 soccer team.

nice looking grass. Kind of a small stadium. Ours holds about 10,000 and sadly we switched to that new field turf crap. They made it look like it has stripes. But everybody knows that they are fake. It does though have our school logo in the middle. Good pics.:cool2:

Ours is kinda built into a hill so the seating could really be a lot, and we have a gravel track for people to stand on, so it's probably in the 15,000 range if it needed to go to that. My freshmen year we went to Caledonia H.S. in SW Minnesota for the State quarter-finals and the paid admission to the game was 4,000. It was crazy to see people completely surround the field along the fence. We shouldn't have played them there, it was way too small, it should've been at Winona State or something.

But there are other schools here in Kansas City that have 4,000 kids in them. They are the school that have the really big stadiums.

Nice work...my niece goes to a rich snobby private school and they don't even have a single stripe...

They are switching to the turf crap. And all $800k was funded by parent donations:dizzy:

Thanks for the comments. We have about 500 kids in our school, not huge. Yep, Super Z w/ the hustler roller stripe kit. It sits about an inch and a half off the ground when the cut height is set to 4". Hosting the American legion state tournament this year in town and i'll get some pics up at the end of july for that.

Public. We are getting the asbestos removed so all the regular custodians are working on that along with some other remodeling. I mow for both the principal and the assistant principal and they asked if I'd take over the groundskeeper spot for the summer. The pay isn't great but I figure it'll be good experience.

Sounds like a good time! I wish my school would do that, the grounds need help!

Nice stripes. You all have large schools, haha. When I graduated I believe the whole student body of the high school was around 89-95 students. Yep, I live in a hick town.

I talked to the guidance counselor and the principal and sold them on the idea of a "groundskeeper assistant" class. Guess what I get to do for 1:30 a day? Worth a shot for ya?

Thats a nicer place than a lot of d2 and d3 universities. As a linebacker- not a fan of playing on the field turf, especially when wet.

one of our football fields has turf and the rest of the fields and school grounds are mowed (very poorly) by town staff. They dont care if it looks good or not cause they get paid either way
