)-- Building your dream field can become a reality, thanks to the dedication of FieldTurf and its wonderful partner USA Football. High School sports are the grass roots of athletics. At this level, kids learn the values and principles not only of sport, but good sportsmanship and strong work ethic. Clearfield High School in Pennsylvania always had a vision, one that would guide its student body on the right path and towards successful futures. The game of football not only means a lot to the school, but to the community as a whole. With the help of the USA Football grant that was awarded to them, this vision became a reality as Clearfield High School now boasts a state-of-the-art FieldTurf football field on campus. A wonderful complement to a humble institution dedicated to preaching the essence of football along with the morals that will shape its alumni as they make their mark in society.
Head Coach Tim Janocko has been a FieldTurf supporter right from the start. Aside from coaching the Clearfield Bisons football team, he served as President of the Pennsylvania Scholastic Football Coaches Association for 1 year, and as a director at the organization for over 20 years. His experience and presence in the community is unmatched, and no one within the region is better equipped to judge football program and teach young players the game’s most important lessons.
“Football has always been part of life, and the passion to teach the game stems from my appreciation of the kids eagerness to learn and have fun,” said Janocko. “What a blessing it’s been to have worked with FieldTurf and USA Football. To think without this grant we would still be playing on a regular grass and dirt surface… We’re now playing on a top-of-the-line product, one the pros play on. It’s safe, it’s fast; it’s completely reshaped athletics here at Clearfield! FieldTurf was chosen because of the quality and reputation is has that quite frankly no other alternative could even come close to matching.”
Coach’s words resonate with the true football fan who understands where he comes from. If you’ve ever played football, nothing can describe that feeling when you first step onto the gridiron, coming out of the tunnel, fans screaming... The feeling is pure, and that rush of adrenaline is what FieldTurf prides itself on with its product. FieldTurf wants its users to thrive on its field, protect it like it’s their own, and most importantly be proud of it. Clearfield’s multi-purpose stadium represents the school, especially when other schools visit to play. This type of emotion represents the type of positive vibes that can carry a community and symbolize its strength within the region.
Aside from the football program, Clearfield High School as a whole benefits tremendously from the field. All P.E. classes are held on the surface, and the whole student body gets an opportunity to work out and play on it. Everyone loves it, and in the process FieldTurf is enhancing student life at Clearfield.
