As has been hinted at and talked about since Turner Gill was hired, a new football practice field is finally under construction.

Lots of progress being made on the new practice field this week…

It is hard to tell from those pictures, but this new practice field will squeeze in behind the FOC, between the new baseball stadium and the current grass practice field. This photo, posted recently on the Liberty University Alumni Association’s facebook page, will give a better understanding of the location:

Once completed, Liberty will have 2 practice fields, 1 natural grass and 1 artificial, further demonstrating the program’s commitment to its athletic facilities and dream of FBS.
