As many Braham grads may remember, it was in the late 1970’s when the football field was moved up the hill and located where it is today. Soon after it was named “Froyen Field,” and many memories were made there over the years. Many wonderful games, conference championships and sectional playoff games have all been contested on the field.
However, this “new” site is not so new anymore, and the scoreboard on the east end of the field is still the original one. Because of its age, replacement parts can not be found. It appears a replacement scoreboard along with installation would start around $15,000. Braham alumni and fans are sought to help the football program and the school to replace this necessary piece of equipment.
The BHS athletic department is hoping to fund this board with three different partners– local businesses, Braham Area High School, and alumni– to have a new board in place for Fall 2011. Any in-kind donations could be made and sent to: “Football Scoreboard-BAHS”, c/o Tim Malone- Activities Director, 531 Elmhurst Ave. S., Braham MN 55006.
Thank-you for your consideration. If you have any questions or concerns, please call Tim Malone, BHS Activities Director (320-396-5209).
