TAYLORVILLE — A crew with Monitor Sign Service hoists a massive scoreboard into place just beyond the north endzone on the Taylorville High School football field. The highlight of the new board will be a state-of-the-art video board (not shown), measuring in at a sprawling 15 feet wide and 6.9 feet tall. “We’re kind of jumping ahead into the current time of things. You go to Mt. Zion, and they’ve got a board; Griffin has a board, so we’re jumping ahead of a few schools and catching up with others. Overall, though, I think it will add to the experience for the fans, and it will give a wow factor to the kids,” said THS Athletic Director Paul Held. “It’s also a point of pride because this really came from the community. It didn’t cost the district a thing, so we’re fortunate to have very generous supporters.”
