FRANK FILLMAN STADIUM

The Lassiter High School Trojans existing turf field had reached the end of its useful life and were in dire need of a new field. The goal of the project was twofold: source a high performance surface that could serve multiple different sports while also honoring the life and legacy of Philip Lutzenkirchen. Members of the Lutzie 43 Foundation took the time to visit turf manufacturing facilities in and around Dalton, GA in order to learn about the companies behind the turf as well as the products themselves. From the very beginning, this project was to be a true partnership between Lassiter High School, the Lutzie 43 Foundation and the turf provider.

GameChanger 3C-52H

SPORTURF™ GAMECHANGER 3C-52H

This is a multi-sport field product. This product should be installed outdoors on a compacted aggregate base. The GameChanger series is the world’s first tufted fabric utilizing three ends per needle. The 3C “Triple Coverage” system allows for more face yarn to show off its beautiful colors. This 14,000 denier system will keep your field looking newer, longer with over 50% more yarn denier above the rubber infill.

Our experience with Sporturf in 2015 to renovate and dedicate Lutzie Field was excellent throughout. The professionalism, communication, and level of technical expertise were excellent. I have been apart of three turf projects and this experience was the best by far. We felt we had a true partner interested in the mission of the Lutzie43 Foundation in addition to the needs of the school.

Not only was the work completed in a timely fashion, but ever single Sporturf contact was a true pro and listened to our requests and concerns and tried to address them as quickly as possible. The collegiate aesthetics of the field and the high quality of the product are very evident. We recommended Sporturf to other schools and will continue to do so.
