Sadly coming down to levies now a days. Even though Hubbard didn't ask for a levy for the new stadium and turf, they went way over on the spending and last election asked tax payers for some insane number in the millions to cover the deficit. Private funding only goes so far now a days. Probably not a bad idea to ask a local corporation in Struthers to cover a chunk of the cost in exchange for naming rights. I know some districts have used this method in the past.

Haha... I have a memory like an elephant. I also hoard everything... I have every PM I've ever sent/received saved in my inbox. lol

Please elaborate... what did Struthers politics have to do with Canfield getting turf?

If the only way to get turf is via a levy, I don't know that it'll get done.

The time to install turf and everything was years ago after they tore down the old stadium. Instead, they cut corners big time...

There was a donor who was willing to donate the money for the stadium wellness center and turf. The catch was he wanted to pick the crew to work on it. A certain board member had other plans because of personal interests and the plan got nixed. This donor then went to Canfield and they welcomed him with open arms. Funny how that stuff works. Struthers politics letting down the city? No way.


It's truly a shame. But I guess if the cats are the only team with grass it will only benefit us on Fridays.

not sure how true that is. Don't they have to public-bid those projects even if donor paying?

And Idk if they have to or not.
If they did the donor just expected things to be done his way. Don't matter. Plenty of struthers people know the story. This was over 13 years ago though.

That is 100% true.

I know exactly who Spread is talking about... it involved my family. The above mentioned crew would've been headed by my uncle.

I just didn't know that the donor took his money to Canfield after all the BS took place.

Maybe with turf going up everywhere, it might just be our advantage to play on grass. Especially late in the season when the field is tore up.

Not surprising that politics came into play.
This is Struthers, after all.

No kick back. The donor justed wanted reliable contractor and work done right. Didn't want his money wasted by politics. Shame the students are the ones to miss out.

Damn shame the BOE couldn't see or understand that. The kids are still handicapped from these same politics in town. Real shame.

State law says it has to be an open bid. The board said they couldn't let a certain person do it because it was against law. The board told him to place a bid like everyone else so donor said and pulled back on it.

About 3-4 years back Howland was going to get turf and really upscale their stadium. I asked a guy from Howland not to long ago whatever happened to all those plans and he said it all fell through because of a lack of money.

Hubbard was very fortunate because the lowest bid came from a company that installs turf all over the country that is actually headquartered right in Hubbard, the owner is a Hubbard alum. I heard he threw in some extras at a very low cost like the big eagle head which I heard is very expensive compared to just putting an initial like a big H on the 50. There are 200 drain tubes under the turf to get rid of the water in a hurry, they say it could rain for a solid hour before kickoff and it wouldn't effect the start of the game. Could Hubbard get the turf today if they didn't have it, I would have to say it would be very difficult. Replacing it every 10 years is a whole lot cheaper now than trying to actually install it.

they did a super job in Hubbard too. I remember how bad the drainage used to be on the visitors side and that hump at the 50. Top 3 stadium in the valley now.

Struthers football 2017

According to Howland stadium Facebook group...3 yrs ago had $400k pledged...as of 3 weeks ago had $300k in the bank. And that's with recent $100k from Cafaro Foundation and $35k from Lewis's that wasn't in the original $400k....sooooo

Looks like a pretty big gap between what was pledged and what is actually in the bank. I know they wanted a total renovation with more seats added plus the new turf. If I'm not mistaken, I read somewhere that Howland's stadium only seats 3000, so I can see why they wanted more seats. It's in a nice location with plenty of parking though.

With the Campbell game becoming the rivalry of the past, I feel like a new official rival is needed. Obvious choice is Poland. But why not Hubbard? Struthers has been playing the eagles for decades!

First game was in 1916. Struthers dominated in the 1940's and 1980's Hubbard dominated in the 2000's.

Struthers leads the all time series.

My source told be 80 percent chance he is back in canton next year , there are a few factors which I will not talk about on here because he is only a kid and no one needs to know about his buinsess anyway . I have kids that are in the high school now and when I asked them if they heard anything about this they both told me they heard it from other kids in the school and they didn't hear from him. Like I said I hope it isn't true because without him next year struthers best case would be 5-5
