Construction of new athletic field house expected soon

Greenback is working to finalize plans for a

new 6,500 square foot athletic field house

that will provide new locker facilities, coaching

office, weight room, as well as home team,

visiting team, and public rest rooms.

Head Coach Jason Hicks expects

construction to begin this spring, and hopes

the facility will be ready for the 2014 season

opener on August 22. The facility is expected to be located on the home side of the football field, adjacent to the grand stands but on the opposite side from the concession stand. The floor plan is still under final review, but a tentative plan can be found here.

Will McKamey passes away

After fighting for three days with a severe head injury, Midshipman Will McKamey succumbed to his injuries late Tuesday evening. McKamey was injured during the first day of spring practice at the U.S. Naval Academy in Annapolis, Maryland, where he is beginning his second year on the football team. He was taking part in regular drills on Saturday and collapsed during practice. He was then hurried to Baltimore for emergency surgery to relieve pressure from swelling in his brain.

The entire Greenback coaching staff, administration, and fans mourn the loss of Midshipman McKamey, and send our deepest regret. We send our most heartfelt prayers to the McKamey family, and ask for God’s help in bringing them comfort and peace.

Godspeed #24.
