Austin, TX, October 10, 2008 --(PR.com
)-- Texas’ Royse City High is so proud of its new TigerTurf
field system that they’ve nominated it for athletic field of the year.
“I feel that our football field and great facilities are second to none,” said Greg Strahm, Royse City High’s Head Coach and Athletic Director. “Our athletes, coaches and fans All agreed we have the number one field in the state of Texas,” he added.
The new synthetic turf, installed in summer, 2008, by Burleson-based Texas Sports Builders (TSB)
, was manufactured in Austin, Texas, by global synthetic turf manufacturer TigerTurf.
“It’s a nice, nice, nice field – everybody is happy with it,” said Nicky Morris, maintenance director, stadium manager and facilities director for Royse City High School. He said Strahm and the school’s other coaches were closely involved in selecting TigerTurf, as they’ve had exposure to a wide array of synthetic products.
“We wanted something that will hold up – a high quality system. With TigerTurf we believe we have one of the top three fields in Texas,” Morris stated. “We can’t say enough good things about TigerTurf and about Texas Sports Builders.”
He said TSB’s crews were extremely professional, extremely responsive to the school’s needs. “The installation went smoothly, they did what they said they would do and their follow up has been extremely good,” he added. “I have already recommended both TSB and TigerTurf to others.”
The new field, part of Royse City’s $13 million stadium project, has hosted several football games and practices and will be used for a myriad of sports and activities, including playoff games.
Other TigerTurf systems can be found in Texas (Monahans and Forney High Schools), throughout the nation and in 85+ countries. TSB serves as a general contractor for sport field needs throughout Texas, Oklahoma and Louisiana.
