To say that Shelbyville Central’s new field house is one of the nicest of its’ kind would be a huge understatement. The estimated half-million dollar facility has been in the works off and on for over three decades but it was well worth the wait. It features a state of the art weight room as well as video and audio systems that include eight 60-inch flat-screen television across the facility. One of the first projects Shelbyville Central head coach Justin Palmer wanted to do when he was hired two years was complete the field house. “This is truly a community effort that dates back to 1986 when the family of former long-time team doctor Taylor Farrar donated $10,000 in his memory to go toward the building of a fieldhouse,” Palmer said. “This would have not been possible if not for the funding by the Bedford County Board of Education, local industries and businesses, individual donations and the Touchdown Club.” Naming rights belong to Titan Transfer while the Training Room will be named after Dr. Taylor Farrar. There are a few finishing touches left but the team officially moved in last Thursday. NOTE: There will be a ribbon cutting ceremony and open house for the public on September 24.
