The Grewal family donated a gift of over a half million dollars, marking the largest private donation in Okemos Athletics history. The new synthetic turf field will host football, soccer, and lacrosse games and the planning of the new field has been years in the making. 

Okemos athletic director Ira Childress spoke with Current Sports production assistants Alec Reo and Connor Matthes about the new field on Friday night.
