Osage City football to start season at ESU

OSAGE CITY—After more than a month of dodging rains, the new field in Jones Park finally has sod in place, enough to play football anyway.

Less than half the field was in place, however, when the USD 420 Board of Education conducted its last meeting. Even with the sod in place, the field needs a minimum of six weeks before hosting a game.

The option of hosting the first games on the practice field had been discussed, but only for junior high and junior varsity games.
