Soil Tests

Starting on a soccer field this year and my samples came back as follows:

Soil pH 8.1
Organic Matter 2.0 medium
Mg- 615
The P, K, S, and Mg are all high to very high
Soluble Salts- 1.88 above 'warning'
CEC= 28meq/100g

It is very low in nitrogen, planning on using 42-0-0 for that. Thinking of using ammonium sulfate instead of sulfur to help lower the pH since the sulfur is already very high. Wondering if any of you have experience with this type of soil and what practices you use to help. Thanks.
