It is known that Texas high school football is quite important to the community – so much so, a Dallas suburb recently debuted its new $60 million stadium for the upcoming school year, according to NBC DFW.
The Allen Eagles now have a new place to call home and they will be playing their first game at the 18,000-seat stadium on August 31. This idea has been in the works since 2009, when voters approved the new facility, which is complete with Natural/Grass Matrix turb, a 75-by-45 foot HD video scoreboard, a weight room and a sunken-bowl design, according to the news source.
The players aren't feeling any added pressure, they are simply excited to get on the field and play.
"We just have to [be] blessed and humble and not take it for granted," upcoming senior Michael Jacob told the media outlet.
Even though this stadium is massive and is bigger than some college stadiums, it is still not the biggest in Texas. According to TIME, Allen Eagles stadium is only the third-largest high school arena in the state.
