HUNTINGTON, W.Va. (WSAZ) -- People can buy a piece of Marshall football history, while helping a local charity at the same time.
On Friday, Habitat for Humanity Restore sold pieces of field turf just removed from Marshall University's Joan C. Edwards Stadium.
Fans lined up early Friday morning to put in their orders. Restore officials say it's taken a lot of work to cut the AstroTurf.
"A lot of folks think it's a piece of AstroTurf that simply you buy at the store, pick it up and throw in your car," said J.B. Miller with Habitat Restore. "The weight is because of the sand and because of the rubber that is inside. So not only are we having to cut it, we're having to shake all of that sand out. Most of it is actually in my shoes right now."
Marshall is spending $750,000 to replace the turf at the stadium.
