ALBERTVILLE, AL (WAFF) - The Asbury Rams have a home field to play on and the team members cannot wait to hit the field.

"I mean it feels great, you know? Being the first, you know, to step foot on the field. You know, hopefully win the first game on the field." said team member Bill Nelson.

The stadium isn't completely finished just yet. Crews are still working on the ticket office, concession stands, restrooms, and the field house. Most importantly, however, the field is finished, as are the stands.

"It's pretty cool, because like, when I was little, I've always looked up to the seniors. And be like, that would be me one day and here I am, about to step in their footsteps, fill their shoes, and do what I need to do and to get this done." said Guard Richard Aguilar.

Students and coaches at Asbury School in Albertville are excited about the brand new stadium, but they are excited about something else as well, not having to log all those extra miles to away games and finally being able to get to bed on time on Friday nights.

"It takes me a long time to get home at night after a ball game, because we got to wash the uniforms and stuff like that. So, I'll be getting home before 2 o'clock, 3 o'clock in the morning now." said Head Coach Jeff Powell.

The Rams open their 2018 season at home for the very first time against Brindlee Mountain on August 24th.
