New high school football stadium touches down at Texas school district
Allen (Texas) Independent School District’s Eagle Stadium debuted to a sold-out crowd last August. The $60 million football stadium was designed by PBK Architects and built by Pogue Construction. Construction began on the 18,000-seat stadium in 2010. It features a 38-foot-wide high-definition video screen and a 75-foot Daktronics scoreboard. The field is surfaced in NaturalGrass Matrix turf. The facility also includes an 11,256-sf weight room and an indoor golf practice area.
