It may be hard to believe but the high school football season will start next month and one local high school is getting a new field.

That’s Dallastown High School in York County.  The natural grass is gone and soon the field will be covered with a new synthetic turf that comes with safety features, like extra padding underneath.  The field will have a 12 year warranty and host a number of different sports.  And the head football coach, Kevin Myers, can’t wait to kick things off.

“Its pretty awesome. I drive by and I haven’t been really bugging anyone about it but its neat to see the progress they’ve made.  The turf was actually delivered this morning.  I think now they are putting down the concussion pad that goes underneath the turf but its exciting to watch.”

No taxpayer money will be used on the new field.  The funds were raised through the Dallastown Educational Foundation.

The Wildcats will have their first home game, Friday August 29th against Lancaster Catholic.
