The first home game for Silsbee football will come later than expected.
Silsbee Head Coach and Athletic Director Bobby McGallion said that Friday’s game against Livingston will be moved to Provost-Umphrey Stadium at Lamar University in Beaumont.
Tiger Stadium is currently in bad shape due to the construction of a new track, and officials say it may not be ready for the game on Friday.
Last week, Silsbee ISD Supt. Richard Bain said the construction of the track was targeted to have asphalt poured prior to Friday’s game.
The rubber track surface would not be completed until after football season.
However, recent weather reports show that rain is expected for the remainder of the week, including Friday.
