Friday Night Lights
Former Athletic Director, the late Doug Grutchfield, made additional upgrades to Crocker Field. He helped change the shape of the track to qualify for state track meets, and he oversaw the installation of a new rubberized track surface. These efforts, funded by grants, school funds, and donations, ensured athletes were experiencing the new technologies in track surfaces. Along with help from longtime advocate Don Woods, Doug helped raise funds from community and business leaders to install lights for sporting events. Football on Friday nights was born at Crocker Field, and it has become a great draw for high school sports fans.
