    NFL and Redskins team up with county for $1 million synthetic field grant

    The Washington Redskins Charitable Foundation and the Loudoun County Board of Supervisors are teaming up to host a press conference April 22 at 10:30 a.m. to announce a $1 million grant to fund a new, synthetic, multi-sport field at Park View High School.

    The Washington Redskins Charitable Foundation and NFL Grassroots Field Grant Program will donate $100,000 a piece to the effort. The Loudoun County Board of Supervisors will provide $800,000 as well.

    Through this grant, Park View will become the first high school on the eastern end of Loudoun County with a synthetic field, which will improve the playing conditions for high school and youth sports and increase the number of playable days on the field. Field construction is scheduled to be completed by fall 2015.

    The WRCF has a long standing partnership with Park View and its student-athletes through its Coaches in the Classroom program. Since 2010, the Coaches in the Classroom program has provided funding to staff an Academic Athletic Advisor at the school to support student-athlete achievement and post-graduation readiness.

    Redskins owner Dan Snyder will speak at the press conference, as will Chairman of the Loudoun County Board of Supervisors Scott York and Loudoun County Public Schools Superintendent Edgar Hatrick. Voice of the Washington Redskins Larry Michael will emcee the press conference.

    More to come in Wednesday's Loudoun Times-Mirror.
