Heath Barnett Field

Heath Barnett Field

The football field at Marshall Academy was officially named Heath Barnett Field Friday night in memory of the former player (Class of 1985) who faithfully supported his alma mater as a businessman. Susan Rodgers, athletic director, is pictured presenting a framed No. 55 jersey to the family as part of the ceremony. Pictured are Gary and Sherry Barnett, his parents; Anita, Rosamond and Amanda Barnett, his wife and daughters; Tubby Gresham, his father in-law; and (in back) Kent Smith, president of the MA board of directors; Eddie Bain, vice president of the board; and Barrett Donahoe, headmaster and head football coach. A permanent sign designating the field as Heath Barnett Field will be installed at a later date.
