HIXSON, HAMILTON CO., TN (WRCB) - Vandals have caused a set back for volunteers building a football field for kids.

Rick Kernea is a volunteer coach.  He's one of many people who've worked for months on a field at Middle Valley Athletic Complex to get ready for five and six year olds this fall.

Over the weekend, Kearnea says someone drove onto the field causing deep ruts and damaging the irrigation system but, he's not looking to press charges.

He just wants them to see what they did and help put it right.

Kernea is putting up a $200 reward out of his own pocket.

The kids will begin playing on the field next month.
