Super Bowl turf lives on the West side

Posted by Darren Urban on March 20, 2015 – 1:43 pm

The Patriots won the Super Bowl at University of Phoenix Stadium in early February. The turf upon which they won the Lombardi Trophy will live on for football too (and soccer and other sports.) The grass has been installed at Tolleson Union High School. Through Chandler-based Evergreen Turf (which, not surprisingly is a partner with the Cardinals), about 90,000 square feet of sod was moved from University of Phoenix Stadium about 6½ miles west.

It’s not the first time the sod (which was grown in Alabama, originally) has been shared locally. After the Giants’ Super Bowl win in February of 2008, that sod was moved to Phoenix Moon Valley High School.

    Nice story Darren, but how do they determine what high school gets the turf? Tolleson has turned out some good football players (all round athletes) and it’s nice to see a small school whose students are primarily from an agricultural community, and perhaps a little less privileged receive such a wonderful gift!

    I do not know how the school is chosen.

    How cool is that. What a thrill, true field of dreams for all who play on it.
