PARADISE, Calif. -

New turf might be coming to an old Northstate football field.

Paradise High Principal Jeff Marcus told KRCR News Channel 7 the school  is thinking about replacing the grass field at Wraith Field with artificial turf by 2014.

But Marcus added that talk of replacing the grass is premature.   He said it would help the school's athletic programs, especially since soccer has moved to winter.

The Bobcats' football games are oftentimes played on muddy and sloppy conditions and they use that to advantage.

Wraith Field is also used for community events like the annual Relay For Life for the American Cancer Society.
