Liberty University’s Osborne Stadium won the Sports Turf Managers Association (STMA) 2017 Field of the Year Award for being the safest and most playable soccer field in collegiate sports. Brian Hinkley, Liberty’s athletic field manager, was honored by the Sports Turf Managers Association for his hard work and dedication to maintain the natural grass field of Osborne Stadium. Thirteen independent judges rated entries based on their various merits such as playability, appearance, and effective use of budget to determine the winning fields. Osborne Stadium will be featured in an issue of SportsTurf Magazine, and an award will be presented at the 29th annual STMA Conference & Exhibition.
