It’s been a while since anyone has raved about the look of Depew’s athletic complex behind the school. Forty years to be exact.
“When I first came here 40 years ago, that field was brand new,” said Dan McGrath, the school’s athletic director and football coach. “We were just moving over here from the Northside Field. It was a state-of-the-art complex. There was [a] new grandstand, new lights, a new field, and of course, a great cinder track.”
Times have changed, and that’s good news for student-athletes, who don’t have to travel to Iowa to see a Field of Dreams, rather just look out of a classroom window.
