Tony Leonard, the Director of Grounds for the Philadelphia Eagles, has one of the best stories in the NFL. His twenty plus years as a grounds manager started by managing dirt fields on the stadium parking lot, maybe the WORST practice facility in the NFL. In the 2000 he moved to what is one the very BEST practice facilities in all of football.
Today he manages grass fields in both his practice facility and at the Linc, the stadium field. A great conversation with a friend of many years (and a long-time TurfNet member to boot) about football, sports turf management and of course there are always a few funny stories.
