The local America Legion has joined efforts with other area groups to maintain and improve a local football field.
The football field at Webster County High School football field recently was aerated and replanted and the American Legion chapter in Cowen donated money to replace the old steps leading to the field.
Local contractors installed the new steps. Football Coach Wes Eddy said the team is encouraged by the support from the county.
"The kids recognize it, the parents recognize it, and I think that the people up at our school up there, I think they recognize it, and it jut brings a sense of community pride that you have a great field to play on, you got a great field house," Eddy said.
The Highlanders will take that field for the third time this year Friday when they host Moorefield.
