Doing a little research project...could you guys please help me out and fill me in on who has turf fields and who has grass.

The indoor facility is 70 yards. It goes from 40 to 50 to 40 and on down to the goal line and 10 yard end zone. The friends of the Pioneers took some money out of the Ref fund and sprung for the extra 20 yards.

Priorities I guess. Maybe we didnít need to pay refs as much the following year. Mustíve had more away games. Iíll tell ya, that Watson chapel year about broke us.

Vilonia seemed like one of the first to put in turf in 2011. Indoor old ragged turf and very small unless it was upgraded recently.

Did Wynne go ahead and get their field in that dead yellow color that the grass field always appeared when we played them?

Pa has turf, no practice facility and I am guessing, but it has probably the smallest weight room or one of the smallest in 5A.
They just work harder with what they have.......😜

PA has an impressive weight room for its size.  I'm sure if Kelley thought they needed more they would have it.

PA has a nice field, nice weight room and bleachers that can comfortably hold up to 27 visiting fans. Let's not forget that 200 yard hike down a gravely embankment to the visiting teams locker room.

Thatís odd that you canít just block the whole thing with the color=black and /color tags. Iím not an html guru though.

Maumelle has turf. No indoor facility though. Those went to Robinson and Mills.

The real question should be, who below 5A has turf?

Rison (3A) has turf. No indoor though.
I think Mineral Springs has turf as well.
If I'm not mistaken Osceola did as well.
Several below 5A do.
