Robertson County Receives Generous Donation For Football Field
SPRINGFIELD TENNESSEE: (Smokey Barn News) – Whether or not you have the money to build a football stadium is academic without land, enter Springfield resident Walter McCauley to the rescue.
Springfield resident Walter McCauley donated about ten acres of land adjacent to Springfield High School. The deal was made official on Wednesday, Oct. 7, when landowner McCauley, and Robertson County Mayor Howard Bradley, signed the paperwork.
McCauley offered the land to the county to be used for a sports facility for SHS, which, until now, has had no campus football field. The donation paves the way for the development of a football complex allowing the school to play their games on an onsite home field.
According to Robertson County Director of Schools, Mike Davis, “He just wanted to do it.” In a conversation with Smokey Barn News Wednesday, Davis wanted to convey publicly how appreciative the district is to receive such a generous gift and fortunate that McCauley just happen to own the property directly adjacent to the school.
As we understand it, the only stipulation to the land deal is that McCauley is expecting the school to continue their history of great games on the new field.
According to Robertson County Schools PIO Jim Bellis, Springfield High School Principal Teresa Leavitt offered free game tickets to McCauley, forever.
