GRAFTON- “It can’t be done!” A common phrase the community and members of the Friends of McKinney field heard from the time the quest to improve Grafton High School’s football field began.

As time passed and donations began to pour in. The community was in awe at the amount of funds that had been collected for the cause through the endeavors of the “Friends,” GHS alumni, the BOE and countless supporters throughout the country.

What many said could not be done, evolved into more than just an effort to turf some football field, but into the creation of a community’s bond to prove even the most unfeasible projects can be accomplished, one turf piece at a time.
