Hancock Begins Building Infrastructure for On-Campus Home Football Games

Allan Hancock College has announced plans to install bleachers at Hancock Football Stadium for its inaugural season of on-campus home football games. 

Crews will begin to install the temporary bleachers and press box at the football stadium on the Allan Hancock College campus on Aug. 11, 2015. The work will allow the Hancock football team to play the first on-campus home games in the fall since the college opened at its current location nearly 60 years ago.

Previously, the football team played home games at Ernest Righetti and Santa Maria high schools.
The football stadium is located off the South College Drive entrance near the gymnasium.

The media is invited to come by between 10 a.m. and 3 p.m., and the college requests that interested parties call or email Phil Hamer at 805.922.6966 x3469 [email protected] in order to ensure reporter and photographer safety.

The bleachers, which will seat about 1,250 spectators, will be installed on the west end of the football field, while the press box will be erected on the east portion of the field.

A temporary scoreboard will be installed next week near the north end of the field. Facilities crews will begin to paint the field the week of Aug. 31.

The Bulldogs open the 2015 season at home on Saturday, Sep. 5, at 2 p.m. against Santa Ana College.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
