Paragon Sports is set to begin work on the two stadiums mid-June and will complete the projects by midAugust in time for football season. Both stadiums will have the Desso D-Vision synthetic turf system installed. Paragon Sports will self-perform all phases of the civil-construction and turf installation at both
“In addition to being low-bid, HISD Athletic Department has spent over a year studying various synthetic turf fields and based on the quality of product and appearance they chose to specify Desso turf,” said Bret Allen, VP Sales & Marketing for Paragon Sports.
“After seeing our installation of the Desso D-Vision system at Crenshaw Stadium for Sheldon ISD, Houston ISD knew that we would provide the highest quality construction and turf for their stadiums as well,” stated Mr. Chaffe.
Desso D-Vision is manufactured by Desso Sports Systems of Belgium. They are an international leader in research and development of high-end synthetic turf products. In addition to their installations for the 2010 World Cup in South Africa, Desso is a preferred turf provider of FIFA, soccer’s international governing body.

Construction of the new field is scheduled to start immediately. Paragon Sports will install a new Desso D-Vision synthetic turf system for the practice field at North Forney High School. Eli Melton, Athletic Director for Forney ISD, made the recommendation to the district after seeking proposals from several contractors and looking at several competitors fields.
“Coach Melton has had the opportunity to play on a variety of synthetic turf fields and has the confidence in Paragon Sports to construct a quality field in the short time allowed for this project,” Bret Allen, VP Sales & Marketing, Paragon Sports Constructors. “This will be the second synthetic turf system the district has installed. This time they decided to install a product that is proven not only at the high school level but also on a collegiate, professional and international level,” stated Mr. Allen, “no other construction company in Texas can say that their product is used at each of those levels of play – and that says a lot about the Desso product.”
Desso D-Vision is a product of Desso Sports Systems. Paragon Sports has installed Desso’s products at Frisco Memorial Stadium, Crenshaw Stadium for Sheldon ISD, Hardin High School, and Brewer High School. They are currently working on Desso installations at Farrington Field, Clark Stadium, and Scarborough-Handley Field for Fort Worth ISD. The D-Vision system will also be installed at Houston ISD’s Butler and Barnett Stadiums later this summer.
