Red Turf Installation at Canyon's Cougar Stadium Nearly Complete
(New Braunfels, TX) -- Canyon Cougar football and soccer fans will be seeing red this year, quite literally, thanks to the new red turf being installed on the football field at Canyon High School's Cougar Stadium. Comal ISD Superintendent Dr. Marc Walker says Canyon has the distinction of being the first and only high school in the country with a red football field. The installation of that new turf is scheduled for completion on Jan. 10th. The red field features white hash marks, black end zones, and the Canyon High School logo in black, white and red on the fifty yard line. That installation is expected to be finished in time for Canyon to host the 3-day Comal Cup soccer tournament which begins on the 13th of this month. Both Canyon Lake and Smithson Valley High Schools have also had new turf installed this year, but those schools elected to stay with the traditional green turf.
