PETROLEUM DIRECTORY: NAC delivers Barrow’s football field

In July Northern Air Cargo began flying the first segment of 62,000 pounds of Pro-Turf synthetic field grass for Barrow High School’s football field.

The majority of the freight was trucked to Deadhorse and flown from Deadhorse to Barrow.

 The field was donated by efforts started by Cathy Parker, a football mom from Jacksonville, Florida, after seeing a story about the Barrow Whalers football program, which plays and practices on a dirt and gravel field. National Football League Hall of Fame running back Larry Csonka was among the nearly 3,000 in attendance at the first game played on the new field on August 17, and Pennsylvania-based Black Diamond Sports broadcast the game live on the Internet. ABC, NBC, CNN and ESPN have all done stories on the effort.
