    Allen (TX) HS builds $60 million football stadium

    Capacity of 18,000 fans, of which north of 8,000 are season ticket holders, and bosts two separate training areas including an 84 yard long weight room.

    Allen is a 5A school with total enrollment of 5,400 students. They regularly put 3-4 players into D1 football programs, including our very own Jeremy Reeves.

    This is big time high school football gentlemen.

    That is amazing. Wife and I lived in Plano in early 80's. I remember the population of Allen around 10k, but they were throwing up all these housing developments in Frisco and Allen. We shook our heads and said that was way too far out; no one would want to live that far out. Now I see Allen in over 80k!

    When I first glanced at the picture, I thought it was a picture of TCU's stadium taken about half way through construction. That weight room looks amazing, too!

    Re: Allen (TX) HS builds $60 million football stadium

    I think with the community support in IA, if there were any schools with that big of enrollment, they would support something like this.
    Valley has 2-3 (or more) D1 players each year. What does their stadium seat? 9k? 10?
    Ankeny would have the potential to get closest to this with their growth, but with the split, it won't happen


    Exaggeration is a BILLION times worse than understating.

    America screwed the pooch a long time ago.......



    "...there have been critics who say spending $60 million on a football stadium is outrageous at a time when education budgets are being slashed.

    "What do I say to that?" Allen school district athletic director Steve Williams asked rhetorically. "I say we're in a community that overwhelmingly voted to build this stadium."


    "We are first and foremost an educational institution that values integrity, honesty and treating others with fairness and respect".

    -ISU President Gregory Geoffroy; circa May 2003.

    Ok. Other school districts are definitely having issues, but how is Allen handling everything else other than football? From what i remember last time this came up, they were a fairly well-to-do district that was performing above average academically. If they can afford it, why not?

    That looks like it would hold way more than 18,000 people.

    Re: Allen (TX) HS builds $60 million football stadium

    Didn't this report come out like 5 years ago? Unless it was a different $60M HS Texas football stadium-- not unlikely...

    Edit. The plans came out 5y ago. nm
