Parking has been another concern, but Arbogast said that besides the school lot, space can be utilized on the team's baseball and softball fields and perhaps a shuttle bus can be run from the nearby SC Community Center.
At least there should be a nice layer of grass at the school field by the time the season starts. A Bermuda Triangle surface is scheduled to be laid on Saturday and should be ready for play in six to eight weeks.
Arbogast said Donnie Mays, the team's first-year coach, has been instrumental in acquiring the grass and getting it installed.
"Donnie is trying to make the dream a reality,'' Arbogast said.
Mays, whose team embarks on its three-week summer practice period beginning Monday, said the field, and not his workout schedule, has taken up much of his time in recent weeks.
"I'm more worried about the germination period of Bermuda grass than football,'' Mays said, "and if it takes or not.''
