The Deer Park Middle School football field moved into the 21st century with the help of Wade Lundgren and fellow Troop 28 Boy Scouts.
The 14-year-old Lundgren wanted to place an outdoor volleyball court at the middle school for his Eagle Scout project but switched to replacing the goalposts at the football field.
The DPMS eighth grader said the current galvanized pipe goalposts, probably placed in the early 1980s, â€śneeded some help.â€ť
Lundgren began his project by soliciting community donations to purchase new goalposts.
