NEW ORLEANS, La. -- A huge accomplishment for Carver High School in the 9th ward, as their 'Field of Dreams' finally becomes a reality.

There will be a groundbreaking ceremony to mark the first phase of construction Thursday morning.

A new football field will be built with turf donated by the Saints, as well as bleachers, restrooms, concessions and lighting.

The project is all part of a bigger 'Dream Stadium' and new school, which Carver School leaders, and the community have been working to raise money for, since 2008.
