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.

Despite cool and windy weather in many parts of the state, anglers had a lot of success reeling in large trout on April 27, the opening day of this year's lowland lakes fishing season.
Based on creel checks conducted at 98 lakes around the state, the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife (WDFW) estimates that anglers caught an average of 4.6 trout on opening day.
Riverside High School senior Courtney Davis has committed to play basketball at Walla Walla Community College for the incoming season.
A three-year varsity starter and the team captain, Davis, the fourth Lady Ram to break the 1,000-point career barrier, averaged 15.3 points per game last season.
Davis, the teamâ€™s most valuable player, received first team All-Northeast A League recognition for the third straight season this winter.
Earning a 3.86 grade point average, Davis has been recognized as a member of the National Honor Society while maintaining an honor roll status.
The Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife now has a new set of â€śFish Washingtonâ€ť logos designed to help symbolize the stateâ€™s many great fishing opportunities.
WDFW tallied more than 1,800 votes on new logo design via the department website and Facebook page. Now, with a few tweaks based on public suggestions, the winning set of logos has been chosen. The logos selected depict trout and bass with backgrounds of Washington state waters and wilderness.
