“We were really proud of the work we did. Mr. Rouff said it turned out better than he ever expected,” Strack said.
Rouff said the high school soccer team used to use the stadium until two years ago when they moved their games to the high school. They now use the field for a host of events including eight to 10 junior high football games, a cross country meet with almost 1,000 runners participating, the Battle Hawk Challenge Obstacle Course race and Field Day at the end of the year.
He said Strack’s project was much appreciated.

“He did a tremendous job utilizing community resources, leading fellow scouts, and enlisting the guidance of knowing adults to complete the project. He took it all on himself and saw the project through to its completion,” Rouff said. “I could not be more proud of the job that he did on our press box and we consider ourselves very lucky to have such a great space at a junior high venue.”
His mom also couldn’t be more proud.
“A lot of them try to squeeze something in at the last minute and he worked really hard, got it done,” Kathy Strack said. “He was helping the younger kids with the different scouting requirements. I’m pretty proud of this guy.”
