Almost five years after a complete overhaul of the facility, officials for Wheeling Island Stadium and Ohio County Schools have added another touch in their attempt to make the stadium the best in the state.
Just in time for Sunday’s Rudy Mumley OVAC All-Star Charity Football Classic, officials announced the installation of a 12×16 foot video display board in the south end zone above the existing scoreboard. According to Bernie Dolan, principal at Wheeling Park, the decision to install the board was an easy one.
”We’ve seen how it has enhanced the game and the fan excitement (at other stadiums), so we thought it would be a great addition,” he said, adding that similar boards at John Marshall and Steubenville served as a guide for the project.
