Blue Hose football fans will see more than the beginning of a new era in PC sports when they come to the first home game on September 15. They’ll also see a brand-new scoreboard behind the end zone near the field house.
“Whether you’re five or you’re 75, the new scoreboard is going to enhance your game-day experience,” Head Football Coach Tommy Spangler said. “It will be exciting for the fans and for the players.”
Football fans can watch replays on the 36×31-foot LED screen. The previous scoreboard had been at the stadium since it was built in 2002.
Anonymous donors provided funds to purchase the new board.
“It shows our commitment to moving forward with the Blue Hose football program,” said Danny Sterling, director of athletics. “This big new scoreboard is just one small example of how we’re doing so.”
The Blue Hose open the 2018 football season on the road against Austin Peay on Saturday, Sep. 8. The home opener against Stetson University on Sep. 15 is the second game of the season.
