That is one of the nicest High School stadiums I have ever scene, and I live in Alabama there are some nice stadiums

Yeah Texas does it big. Here's a Houston area's district stadium, with a basketball arena in the back.

Being a high school football player in Texas must be so awesome. You get to play in stadiums like that and you're treated like royalty.

Much better than being a high school football player in Canada where you play in front of 100 people if you're lucky (except for homecoming where we rent a small stadium and get a decent crowd of students and alumni).

Um...this one beats that one:

This always throws me.

The NFL Cardinals play in a local university's stadium - but that university is not the University of Arizona. It is instead, an online school which bought the naming rights to an NFL stadium.

It always feels like the NFL team is slumming it up at some Div-2 college field, but that's not the case.

I recently saw a commercial for the University of Phoenix. They said their football team is undefeated. I thought it was funny.

Interestingly, the stadium is empty for all of their team's games because everyone watches the games online.

The memory I have of the old logo still keeps haunting me... Very first Packer game my dad took me to was at Old Busch Stadium in '76(can't believe I just found highlights from such a crappy game and I'm reliving the nightmare! :lol: ):

That A may not look too imposing in this picture, but I can assure you, it's HUGE. It's gotta be at least a good two stories tall. It's definitely not the biggest logo I've ever seen, but considering its just a big banner, it's hard not to laugh when thinking about the look on the faces of the people who worked at the sign shop that was commissioned to print that thing up.

Try playing in Australia, we have three high school age teams in the state and are lucky to get 100 people at the state final. We only had about 100 people at each game at nationals and most of them would have been players from the other states.

This is a picture during construction but the back side of the Regions Field scoreboard has a big Birmingham Barons logo. They are the Double A affiliate of the Chicago White Sox. The other pic is theoutside of the stadium on the 1st base side. There is also a big Script B on the Brick on the outside on the 3rd base side but can't find a picture of it.

A few more angles of the Cardinals' logo on the outside of the stadium...these pics don't do justice as to the size:

It'd be better if University of Dayton hadn't used that same tagline for the previous 30 years.

I had to seriously look at this a few times to realize it wasn't a flood, but simpy a fountain. :lol:

The Cowboys star on top of the scoreboard is amazing, never seen it before. It's details like that, that I just adore about stadiums. It's all about brand application.

My home state (Maryland) would never do anything like this for high school athletics. Hell, many of the newer schools opened in Maryland seemed to have went cheap on the athletic facilities.

Honestly, I like the idea of public schools in bigger cities pooling their money and getting one really nice stadium that can be rented out for other events in the offseason, rather than building on-campus facilities that won't be nearly as nice. Especially when most schools could probably put that space to better use.

Here in Milwaukee, only four of the 11 schools that play football even have their own facility, and they damn sure don't look like this!

I can't help but wonder what the school library or chemistry lab looks like at this school....

I think that the ISD bought that stadium; it belongs to the district and not the school.
