Aaron Kilgore and Sean Westmoreland prepare the “4” space with glue strips after they cut out the number.

JACKSBORO, TN (WLAF) – Thursday was a long day for the Kalmia. It began at sun-up at 6:30am and ended at 6:30pm.

“We stopped once for a shower, but then got right back at it,” said crew member Aaron Kilgore.

Sean Westmoreland, Aaron Kilgore and Patterson set the “4.”

The big upside to take away from Thursday is that all of the hash marks are down. Work on the yard line numbers began after the hash marks were finished.

“Yard line numbers start by getting all the measurements correct followed by making the cuts. After that, the glue strips are put down with the laying of the letters. The final step is “walking it in” to there is good contact with the glue strip,” added Kilgore.
