Photo Gallery: New Marco Battaglia Football Practice Complex


The Marco Battaglia Football Practice Complex, which is built thanks to a donation from Jeff and Amy Towers, is still under construction as a construction crew of around 60 continues to work on putting down Kentucky bluegrass on two new practice fields.

Per ScarletKnights.com, the new facility will contain "Two new grass fields; complete with rebuilt drainage and a new irrigation system as well as a state-of-the-art LED lighting system."

Additionally, the previous fencing around the area is being replaced by a short strip of brick wall with standard fencing making up the rest of the perimeter.

The facility is still on track be completed in time for the start of the team's fall camp.
