The Fluvanna Flucos held their first football practice on the field at the new high school on Monday (July 30).The Fluvanna Flucos’ football team practiced for the first time on its new, artificial turf field Monday (July 30). This isn’t your father’s artificial turf – remember the fake grass outdoor carpet over plywood?

This turf is thick, plush and even has little bits of “dirt” (loose, black pieces of rubbery stuff, technically) that pop up when the guys run or the ball bounces. And there isn’t the hollow feeling of running on loose fiber board. It’s solid. No special turf shoes needed, it’s so grass-like. Add a comment
