This Friday night, the new turf at Taylorville High School will host its first varsity football game. Both Mayor Bruce Barry, and Athletic Director Paul Held are looking forward to Friday night. Mayor Barry says the debut of the turf will be a good community event for the city of Taylorville.
Held has heard great reviews from the turf so far. However, he is excited for all the people who will come out to watch the game, and see the difference between the old field, and new turf.
Taylorville will play Charleston on Friday night, and it is also going to be Senior Night for the Tornadoes.
