    A&M adding a new FB training facility

    Donors fund new A&M football training facility | Bryan/College Station, Texas - The Eagle

    The Aggie football team will prepare for the 2012 season in a two-story sports performance center that will cost an estimated $6 million.

    The 18,000-square-foot building's completion is scheduled for next summer, although a groundbreaking date has not been set. The building will contain weight training and skill development areas, as well as a locker room.

    The new facility would be adjacent to the Bright Football Complex.
    The new center will be available only to members of the football team, which currently share a workout facility with 20 other A&M athletic teams, and will eliminate the "traffic issues" faced in the Netum Steed Laboratory, Sherman said.

    "I know it will help us develop our football players into better athletes," he said.

    The center will also feature a video wall and second-floor viewing platform, which Sherman said will attract more talent.

    "There will be no other facility in the country like it," he said.

    The project's $6 million cost estimate includes furnishings and equipment.

    Associate athletics director Alan Cannon shared Sherman's perspective that the center will enhance the university's recruiting ability. He likened the performance center's video wall to the 49-panel display in the Association of Former Students' Flores Hall.


    Sounds a lot like what we are adding. IIRC ours was listed as a $10 million project.
