Own a Piece of Maverick History: Moore Catholic selling 100 pieces of old turf field

Calling all Moore Catholic alumni!

Here’s your chance to get a piece of Maverick history and it’s a unique one.

When the school announced last month it was replacing its old turf field with a new red playing surface, the administration at the school came up with an ingenious idea of selling 100, one-yard pieces of the old field as a keepsake.

Well, the school’s athletic director, J.C. Albano, on Friday announced the offer in an email to all alumni.

“It is with great pride that I share with you this unique opportunity to own a piece of Moore Catholic history! Following the school’s announcement of the installation of the new red turf field, we will keep 100-yards of the old turf field and sell each yard to anyone interested. We are limited to only one-hundred pieces, so we ask that you reserve yours today,” wrote Albano.

Albano is calling it a donation to the school’s athletic department and there are two ways to get some turf.

1. For a 1-yard field swatch, make a $125 donation to Maverick Athletics.

2. For a personalized and framed 1-yard field swatch, make a $250 donation to Maverick Athletics. (Please limit the customization to your name, jersey number, sport and years you attended the Graniteville school).

“This will be a very special gift and we hope you consider supporting your alma mater through this fundraiser,” said Albano.

To reserve your Maverick keepsake, interested parties are asked to email by March 26, 2021.

The new field is expected to be ready by the end of the school year. The old turf was installed in the early 2000s.
