SWEETWATER вЂ” Sweetwater High's King Berrong Stadium got a recent facelift with a new brick front just in time for Friday night's football season opener against Meigs County.
SHS Principal David Watts said the football field's concession stand and press box also got renovations.
"This was the brainchild of coach (Craig) Moser and the Quarterback Club," Watts said.
"We always had trouble with the paint on the wall," Watts said. "You could never really make it look good."
Watts said John Anderson got the brick at a reduced rate and much of the work was supervised by Eddie Byrum and Jim Kile. In fact, several police officers and fireman who have students at the school worked hard on the projects.
"The guys really did a nice job changing the look," Watts said. "It went from looking like a high school field to a college field."
Watts thanked Sheriff Bill Bivens for allowing some inmantes to help with the work.
The stadium had new bleachers put in within the last few years. King Berrong Stadium and Carter Field has been home to three state champion Wildcats football teams.вЂўtommy.email@example.com | 337-7101
