SHREVEPORT, La. (KSLA) - Coaches inside Leonard C. Barnes stadium called it “long overdue”.

Booker T. Washington football players finally reach the same level playing field, as many of their counterparts in Louisiana. A ribbon-cutting ceremony officially opened the turf-field era inside the historic venue.

The Lions will host their first game on the new surface Friday, September 22 when Woodlawn pays a visit.
