07/10/17  Rison Head Coach Clay Totty Talks About New Artificial Turf


Bids were opened last week on the new turf to be laid on Wildcat Stadium in Rison. According to head football coach Clay Totty, the low bid submitted was $472,000.00. He said the Cleveland County School board will vote on accepting or denying the bid at their next meeting, which is coming up July 17,  rather than the usual meeting date. The meeting was changed due to the 4th of July holiday. Totty said the field will be named after George Walker and will be dedicated on September 22 during the Rison-Bearden game.

Totty said work is underway on laying the new turf field at Wildcat Stadium. It's hoped that the field will be ready for the September 8, season opener.
