If you take pride in your athletic fields, TXSTMA is where we meet!
University of Texas at Austin
I am an athletic field and turf specialist for the University of Texas. I have been here since March of 2013, and am starting my third season overseeing the Red and Charlene McCombs softball field. I assist with all playing surfaces at the university during our many events. I have been involved with TXSTMA for a number of years serving on the board as a region director twice, and I enjoy talking turf and talking with others about their facilities.
