Sterling, VA (August 19, 2015) – The Park View Patriots will start their season on a new synthetic turf athletic field courtesy of the Washington Redskins Charitable Foundation, NFL Grassroots Field Grant program, and Loudoun County Public School’s Board of Supervisors.
Prior to the Friday, August 28th official field dedication and before the Manassas Park vs. Park View varsity football game, the Redskins Charitable Foundation will host a Play 60 mini-combine led by members of the Park View football team for youth attending the game. The Play 60 mini-combine will take place from 4:30 – 5:30 pm.
Redskins owner, Dan Snyder will be in attendance for the field dedication and ribbon cutting ceremony taking place from 6:30 – 7:30 pm.
Said Snyder when the grant was formally announced, “Being based in Loudoun County and loving Loudoun County the way we do… working together and having this opportunity for Park View is something special. We want to make sure you all come out and see it, because it ends up being something so dramatic and touching to the kids — and it’s all about the kids in the end.”
