    Default $60 Million High School Football Venue

    Allen High School in Allen, Texas is opening up a $60 million football stadium at the end of August. The Allen Eagles home turf will seat 18,000 spectators and will have a 3,400 square foot HD score board. It's being paid for through a bond approved by voters in 2009. Patrick Jones gives you a look at the football palace that would make Coach Taylor of "Friday Night Lights" envious.

    Wow, that's better than a lot of colleges can boast.
    Taylor Swift is nice to look at. Adele can sing.

    Heck, when I was in High School we played Allen in the playoffs. Then it was just a small town north of Dallas. It's grown some since then. Lots of super nice hs football stadiums in Texas, looks like this one takes the cake, for now anyway.

    I played high school ball in Maryland from 73-75 on all dirt fields, 1950s goal posts , mickey mouse bleachers that held about 50 people, and no lights 3pm on Friday afternoons.

    I used to drive past the stadium all the time while it was under construction. I had to remind myself each time that it was just for high school, then I remembered that I was in Texas.
    Nothing to see here.

    Lol, I know how you feel.

    We had "rock pick up" at the end of each practice.

    Sounds similar to football at Woodlawn (Maryland) High School in the '80's. Games at 3pm on Fridays but no bleachers. Just the side of a hill to sit on and watch the game.
