#9 Homecoming at NIU and New Greg True Field
It all started with an honest mistake that changed the entire season for the 2015 St. Edward football team. After a landscaping company mistakenly sprinkled the grounds of Greg True Field with weed killer instead of fertilizer, the Wave was no longer allowed to play their home games at home. The field was gone, but the spirit never died. After the Wave exploded onto national news, and with the help of many donations, Greg True Field was transformed from a dead zone to one of the best grass fields in the state. Scott’s Lawn Care help laser-level the field, replaced it with new sod and though the field was never ready for game play this season, it gave St. Edward the opportunity to play on college turf for their Homecoming game. On October 2nd, the Wave took over Huskie Stadium at Northern Illinois University and beat Walther Lutheran. For senior night, Scott’s invited former Chicago Bear Brian Urlacher to visit St. Edward, where he spoke with the team.
