Construction won't be a distraction for John Marshall
Construction crews broke ground on what will be John Marshall’s new football stadium back in the spring and the work will make finding a spot for fall camp a little tricky.
But Bears coach Bruce Troxell is in no mood to hear any of his players complaining about the situation.
“No excuses,” he said. “You take what you’ve got and you go from there. We can get on the practice field. We can get on the baseball field.
“The kids are excited about what’s happening. There’s a buzz around the school, people asking all the time, ‘When’s it gonna be done?’”
The track has been laid, and the stripes were scheduled to be painted last week, but the heat caused a delay. The football field and stadium will be ready to open for the 2012 season.
I’ll be checking in on the Bears later this week to see how camp is going. I heard a lot of good things over the summer, so they could make things even tougher in an already brutal district.
