Thanks to donations, the Westminster College Blue Jays will take the gridiron on some new digs.

The school announced a $3 million donation from alumnus Kent Mueller will help fund a new football stadium.

School president Fletcher Lamkin made the announcement at the school gymnasium Tuesday afternoon.

Phase I of the project includes new turf, scoreboard and lights, expected to be completed by the beginning of the 2018 season.

Phase II will incorporate construction of the structure itself, including bleachers, the press box, concessions and rest rooms.
