PAW PAW, Mich. -- The Paw Paw Rocket Football program is offering a reward of $1,250 for help in finding the vandal who killed much of the grass on their football field.  Sometime late last week, someone sprayed weed killer on the city-owned field, and by Monday the damage was evident, according to the Rocket Football Board Director Brad Newell.

The field is used by 170 youth players and, thanks to a local company, Roberts Landscaping,  much of the damage was covered up with paint Wednesday morning.  However, it won't be until next year that the field completely recovers.

If you know anything, contact the Paw Paw Police Department at 269-657-5501.
