BURBANK — Burroughs High football Coach Keith Knoop realized his team would have to make do without a home field for the 2010 season.
The coach was told the renovation project to construct a new stadium, running track and football field on the school's Memorial Field site would begin the first week of June.
With his team being displaced for a project that would last past the 2010 campaign, Knoop and the Burroughs administrators had to schedule all the Indians' 10 home games on the road.
Burbank Coach Hector Valencia and the Bulldogs were in the same boat, as the team also uses Memorial Field as their home venue.
Having resigned themselves — and their teams — to their fate for the upcoming season, the coaches were floored when they were told last month that the construction project would be delayed.
