Knosher Bowl sparkles for season opener

Excerpt from the Register-Mail:

Extensive off-season renovations have made Knox College’s Knosher Bowl a showplace.

Saturday it will be time to put on the show.

Coach Andy Gibbon’s 12th Prairie Fire team will sprint onto the new FieldTurf surface for a 1 p.m. opener against Eureka College energized by what basically is a new playing facility.

“Even for some of us slow guys, it makes us feel faster,” said senior defensive end Tighe Burke.
“The fact that the college has spent a great deal of money on the football program gets us really excited.

“It’s awesome. It’s a lot of fun to play on.”

Fans attending Saturday’s game will certainly notice the glittering new playing surface, the added sideline space for players, new goal posts, new scoreboard, new fencing, new entrances and the lowered north berm of the bowl.
