|Recently, the YSU Penguins football program shared its Sports Construction Group-installed Shaw Sportexe Powerblade HP+ synthetic turf fields with the San Francisco 49ers. The professional team stayed in the area during a bye week and practiced on the fields for two consecutive days. Players from the 49ers trained at the Stambaugh Stadium complex and utilized the Watson and Tressel Training Site, an indoor athletic facility, during their visit.
San Francisco 49ers Head Coach Jim Harbaugh told media outlets he was impressed with the facilities at YSU. “It’s top notch in terms of the stadium, the two brand new turf fields, the indoor, the outdoor, plenty of equipment.”
