This is a series looking at Delaware stadiums and gyms, and the experience gamegoers will have at them.
We told you about the best stadium atmosphere upstate, now we head to the furthest school south in Delaware and the cozy confines of Frances E. Nunvar Stadium, where the Delmar Wildcats play.
Many know how tough a road trip to Delmar can be. The field has no track so the fans seem to sit right on top of the action.
The fans who arrive late can be equally intimidating as they line the fence of the endzone.
When you drive down Line Road (literally the state line) houses on your left are in Maryland and to the right are the Delaware residents.
That’s when you start to get the small town feeling. It might be a small town, but two big for just one state.
This fall will be the 95th anniversary of organized football in Delmar.
In 1928 teacher/coach Nunvar began removing trees to make way for what would become the first football field in the town.
With a new school in 1998 came a new field and the Frances E. Nunvar Stadium was officially dedicated.
What happened to the old field you ask? The current Delmar Middle / High School now sits on that site.
The community has seen 20 Henlopen South championships and seven Division II state titles.
Faithful fans young and old still turnout for a 7:30 kickoff on Friday night.
