It's nicknamed "The Jungle," and it's considered one of the toughest environments for opposing high school football teams to visit.
Now, the football stadium at Louisa County High School is getting some national noteriety - for its playing surface.
The Sports Turf Managers Association has announced that Louisa County has won the 2011 Schools and Parks Football Field of the Year award.
According to the STMA release, a panel of six judges grades applicants on "the playability and appearance of the playing surfaces, innovative solutions employed, effective use of budget, and the development and implementation of a comprehensive, sound agronomic program."
Fields are broken down into five types - baseball, football, soccer, softball and sporting grounds - and three categories - professional, college and university, and schools and parks.
Louisa's football field was one of eleven to win STMA awards for 2011. The college football award winner was Northwestern University's Ryan Field.
