That’s my high school. Whoa.
High School Football Stadium of the Day: Eagle Stadium, in Allen, TX, a Dallas suburb, opens later this month after three years of construction, and tongues are wagging at its $60 million price tag.
The state-of-the-art facility boasts 18,000 seats (all bleachers), two luxury suites, a pro-quality press box, and a 3,400-square-foot HD video scoreboard. The project was funded by a $119 million bond package approved by 63 percent of voters three years ago.
“It shows that the people of Allen support their kids,” said Allen head football coach Tom Westerberg.
Meanwhile, by the 2011-2012 school year, the Allen school district was facing a $4.5 million budget shortfall and was forced to cut 44 teaching positions and 40 support positions.
Luckily for Allen football fans, the school’s operating budget was separate from construction; voters eventually agreed to increase property tax rates by $0.13 to offset state education cuts.
