Volunteers embrace a Mishawaka football tradition despite the cold weather
MISHAWAKA, Ind. – Braving freezing cold temperatures, volunteers helped clear snow off of Mishawaka’s Steele Stadium football field on Wednesday morning.
Shoveling snow from the football field is a kind of tradition for Mishawaka High School employees and volunteers before home games.
Keith Kinder, the Mishawaka High School Head Football Coach, said, “Last year before we played in the semi-state game, they were out here on either Thursday or Friday morning of the game doing the same exact thing- getting the field ready for the young men that are going to play on it. If we’ve got a game and there’s snow on the ground, these guys’ll [sic] clear it off for us. They’ve been so great, we’re really lucky to have them.”
The work was done in an effort to have the field ready to play on for the Regional Championship game.
The game is set to take place between the Mishawaka Cavemen and the Valparaiso Vikings on Friday night.
