LOOK: Take a Sneak Peek at Wyoming’s New End Zones
LARAMIE -- The turf inside War Memorial Stadium is being replaced.
It has been a decade since a new playing surface was installed in Laramie. Want some PR jargon?
The stadium’s new Vertex CORE was designed to deliver the perfect combination of performance and beauty. Equipped with two legendary FieldTurf fibers, the Classic HD slit-film fiber and the CORE monofilament super fiber, the system delivers leading agility, durability, and aesthetics. Vertex CORE demonstrates FieldTurf’s unwavering dedication to quality and strives to Change The Game.
In layman's terms, it's going to look awesome when the Pokes host Texas Tech Sept. 2 on national television.
Jed Easterbrook, Regional VP for Tarkett Sports/FieldTurf in the Mountain Region, was once upon a time a quarterback at Laramie High School. He also attended the University of Wyoming where his father, John Easterbrook Sr., was an offensive coordinator for the Cowboys.
Easterbrook shared a photo on social media of the new end zones, which still feature the mountain designs.
The Cowboys and Red Raiders are set to kickoff at 5:30 p.m. Mountain Time and the game will be televised on CBS. Season tickets are now on sale and individual game tickets will reportedly be available beginning July 12.
