Jacksonville State receives new turf

Announced on Wednesday, Jacksonville State’s Burgess-Snow Field received a new turf, which is now fully installed and ready to face the 2016 season.

"We got on it [Tuesday] night for the first time, and our guys were just chomping at the bit,” said head coach John Grass. “We got on it for the second time [Wednesday], and that's going to make it hard to go back to the practice field. It's a whole lot softer and better than our old turf, and it looks great."
