Dragon Stadium (Southlake Carroll High/Southlake, TX)



Jack Rhodes Memorial Stadium (Katy High/Katy, TX)



Waller I.S.D. Stadium (Waller High/Waller, TX)



Maverick Stadium (UTA/Arlington, TX)




The last one is actually a college stadium, but c'mon, UTA hasn't had a football team since before I was born and no one but Arlington high schools use it.

The amount of attention given to High School football in some parts of this country is insane. These kids are 14-18 years old, and some towns are spending millions on these stadiums. Completely ridiculous.

Where I went to high school (New Jersey) the students parents showed up, some of the students not on the team (who spent most of their time hanging out with their friends), and that was it. In texas, these teams have legitimate fans. Sickening.

You live in the north. I'm sure you grew up in the north. So simply, you just don't understand how it is. Just like I don't see why northerners feel that a city HAS to be defined by having nearly all its people elbow to elbow, stacked on top of each other in the center of the city, or just like how Europeans find it strange that our stadiums don't have roofs (I'M NOT TRYING TO START SOMETHING, just pointing it out...).

What you see as "sickening", is viewed as boys having 4 years moment of glory... unless the team sucks. There's sevral bad deals and courption behind Texas High School football, yes, but the same can be said about most anything in sports. Even at school level.

Do you support communities spending millions on minor league baseball stadiums? Most (if not all) of the new High School stadiums are used year-round by multiple teams from different sports (football, lacrosse, and soccer), minor league ballparks are rarely shared. Also these High School Stadiums are used by more than one school, and the teams that occupy these stadiums won't threaten to leave after 10-15 years if they don't get a new stadium. So which one would be a better investment for your community; a million dollar facility for high school sports or a million dollar facility for a professional team?

HS basketball can be just as crazy. I've been to HS games with over 8,000 in attendance.

Majority of Canadian universities don't have stadiums like this. Quite amazing I must say. My highschool "stadium" was two temporary stands with maximum capacity of about 150 people each side of the 55 yard line.

My high school stadium only seats about 1,100 and is lucky to fill it halfway. When I went there a few years earlier, we didn't even have a stadium, just a lumpy field with bleacher racks.

Might as well post this here again...

News from Apr 2010 but here's a story about a new high school football stadium that will cost $60 million dollars and will seat 18,000. I wonder if this will be the beginning of an arms race of trying to further monetizing high school sports just like the NCAA does.

The new stadium will feature:

* Video Scoreboard
* Two level press box with film deck and Observation deck
* Home side reserved seating with seat backs
* 1,5000 additional parking spaces with 4,500 total parking spaces
* 18,000 seat Stadium with upper deck seating including:
o 5,000 reserved seating,
o 2,700 General Admission
o 4,000 Students
o 5,300 Visitor
o 1,000 Band








Here's a pdf with more information and renders.
And here's a further update from the NY Times in Jan, 2011 on the construction of the stadium.

The Pit, Cincinnati, Ohio. Home of the Elder High School Panthers. Capacity of 10,000. Built way back in 1947 by the students of the high school.





Here's a good article on what The Pit means to Elder.
