    High school football facilities superior to what ISU has

    The Massillon (Ohio) Tigers have an 80,000 square foot indoor training facility and a 18,000-square-foot sports medicine building.

    Before anyone freaks out, it's bigger than what the Cleveland Browns have as well.

    I would not doubt it if they were not the only HS with better facilities.

    Massillon is an elite football program. 22 state championships. I heard about them all the time when I lived in Ohio.

    That is an amazing facility.

    Re: High school football facilities superior to what ISU has

    Considering Massillon hosted one of the original NFL franchises (as well as nearby Akron and Canton), and considering that area of Ohio is still absolutely football crazy (ever been to the Pro Football Hall of Fame?), a high school in that part of America spending that much coin on their football program really doesn't surprise me all that much.

    Many high school teams also have about 3 times as many players than the Browns when you include JV and FR teams. The pros don't need a huge facility.

    I'd like to see what other HS's have an indoor facility, even in Texas, I doubt too many, if any.

    The link below is just what is in Oklahoma when it comes to high school indoor practice facilites.

    People like to think that high school sports is "big" in this state...think again. While Iowa is in rush to finish their football playoffs in what seems like record time, playoffs are just starting in Texas and will go well into December.

    Interesting that most of those in Oklahoma are baseball facilities.

    There was a movie made about Massilion and their football program. When they make one about Iowa State maybe we will spend the same coin.

    Re: High school football facilities superior to what ISU has

    I've been in the Jenks Facility and it is offices and weight room, not a practice facility.
    Most of those are baseball/softball facilities because of them having that season in the spring, probably start practicing in early Feb.
