Today the Lehman High School students, parents, alumni's and community residents are petitioning for the Lehman H.S sports field to be fixed! The football field was shorted 20 yards and cannot have regulation contests, the time is Now! We are tired of hearing that it cannot be done.

Our student athletes should not have to travel to play in fields of other schools, they should be playing in their own. It demoralizes their hard work, it takes away the spirit of having the support in their games.

July of 2010 then Senator Jeff Klein sought to get answers and it was found that the adjacent land is not owned by the Army Corps of Engineer's. This information was given to president and chief of the school construction authority, and no resolution was proposed by the BOE to make the modifications.

Ten years later and our kids continue to wait for this to get done!!! Its been decades of excuses.

Lehman High school's football program is among NYC's  elite, every year we have players that get into division 1 colleges, we have had players that have gone all the way to the NFL, one being Doug Marrone. 

 We are proposing a new field in the renaissance of the Bronx. We want our student athletes to obtain a fully functional football and athletics sports area where all teams will continue to strive.

We are not going to give up until our kids get the sports field they deserve.

We hope to get one million signatures!!!!!!!
