This fall when the Central Football team hits the field at R.J. Schipper Stadium, it will be on a brand new playing surface. Last week a crew began tearing up the old turf, so an upgraded version of Fieldturf can be installed. Central’s Athletic Director Eric Van Kley explains the new and improved field will come at no cost to Central College because it was under warranty. The freshlook field is expected to be ready when preseason drills begin in mid-August. The Dutch home opener is Saturday, September 7th vs Wisconsin-Oshkosh.
