Boys Town Home Campus Football Stadium Receives Upgraded Bleachers and New Press Box

Social distancing just got a little easier for the Boys Town Cowboys this fall thanks to a generous donation from the Boys Town Booster Club. The long-awaited football stadium renovations at Home Campus are now complete – just in time for fall sports to begin. With upgraded bleachers and press box, the Boys Town community can safely come together and cheer on the Cowboys.With the last few months being a little less than normal, the youth were excited to take part in the renovations by voting on a new logo for the press box and being able to watch the process throughout the summer. With renovations completed, Boys Town Mayor Hazakiah and Boys Town Vice Mayor Hailey got a sneek peek tour of the new bleachers, press box and logo.Getting to tour the renovated stadium made both Hazakiah and Hailey even more excited to get back to fall sports. "I am so happy to be in football and I can't wait to play again," said Hazakiah. "We have been watching the construction from our house and we are excited for Friday nights," said Hailey.

Sports on campus play a big role not only for the students, but also for the community. It gives the youth the opportunity to do what they love, fans a reason to cheer, and the community a chance to come together and be a part of something great. 

 "My favorite thing about sports at Boys Town is the relationship with the coaches. They try to bring everybody together and make it like a family. We are brothers at Boys Town," said Lebron who is a member of the football, wrestling, and track teams.

In addition to building camaraderie and a youth's confidence, there is also great therapeutic value in being involved in an any extracurricular activities. Preparing for a season and practicing daily helps build valuable life skills that youth can continue to use after their time at Boys Town.

The first football game at the renovated Cowboys stadium was on August 28 against Columbus Lakeview. "The field looks way better than it did last year," said TJ, who has been at Boys Town for eight months and is on the football team. "I just can't wait to play on it."

Thank you to our generous boosters who have made these upgrades possible and for everyone who has been involved in the renovation process. Good luck Boys Town athletes!
