Deer Creek coach Grant Gower expects stadium to be ready
Because its stadium expansion wasn’t complete, Deer Creek was forced to relocate its season opener against Piedmont to Yukon’s old stadium.
Deer Creek is undergoing a massive stadium improvement project that will take several years to complete.
Last year, the stadium got artificial turf, new lights and a track. This year, the home side is expanding to seat 3,500 fans.
Coach Grant Gower said that, while he can’t make any guarantees, he expects this week’s home game against Shawnee to go on as planned.
“I just got out of a construction meeting, and things are looking very good for this Friday,” Gower said Saturday. “They are making a lot of headway.”
