Oxford, the turf has landed!
July 27, 2011 - All the wondering, waiting and worrying is over as installation of the much-ballyhooed synthetic blue turf began at the Oxford High School football stadium last week.
|The turf arrived on Monday, July 18 and by the end of the week, the workers had all 100 yards, plus the end zones and yard numbers, in place. (click for larger version)|
With temperatures in the 90s all week, sweaty workers braved the sweltered summer sun to ensure Oxford's blue turf will be ready for the big game next month against dreaded rivals, the Lake Orion Dragons.
The field is a sea of navy blue with white stripes framed by two bright yellow end zones.
Oxford is now the only high school in the United States with blue turf.
