Hancock High School stadium unveils new field turf

KILN, MS (WLOX) - Hancock Stadium and Brett Favre Field has a new look, field turf, the latest in artificial turf.

Hancock becomes the 7th high school on the Mississippi Gulf Coast to play on field turf along with Biloxi, Ocean Springs, St. Patrick, West Harrison, D'Iberville and Harrison Central.

Rocky Gaudin said."We're real excited about it. It's a big thing for us but I know a lot of people have gone to it some still haven't but it was a great thing for our school and great watching the process of it."@

Gaudin says the addition of field turf and a new track will also enhance athletics at the high school.

He said,"On May 15th we're hosting a five-team jamboree here. We have us, West Harrison, Pass Christian, Moss Point and Resurrection coming over."

After rainy days, Brett Favre Field should be ready for practice, because the new field turf drains extremely well.
