We're deep into the football season, and several Metro schools will enjoy it even more thanks to hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of field and stadium improvements. The money comes from the people who know fields and stadiums best - the Tennessee Titans and the National Football League. Some $200,000 were spent on upgrading the bleachers, fences, scoreboards, goal posts and more at Bailey, Neely's Bend, Joelton and Apollo Middle Schools. Cane Ridge High School received enough money for new sod on the field and new lighting.The money is part of a grant from the NGL Grassroots Program, which brings together the league's Youth Football Fund with the Local Initiatives Support Corporation. More information is available on the Youth Football Fund website.
