CARNEY, Okla. -- The Carney junior varsity football team will take the field Tuesday night in the school's first home football game in almost a century.
The school district has been without a football field for about 90 years. A group of volunteers set out to change that in February.
A local welding company took old oilfield pipes and created goal posts.
The group bought Wellston's old scoreboard for pennies and a bucket of paint later it was theirs.
The Carney baseball team donated a spare set of bleachers.
"Everybody in this crew contributed, worked hard at this, tremendous sense of pride," said Karla Dimick with the Carney Business Association. "I know we've salvaged a lot of things to get here, but it's gonna be worth it."
