Football (Throwball) is and always will be the number one sports in Texas. I am just suprised it is the 3rd largest HS football stadium in Texas. What are the other two?

I believe Mesquite Memorial Stadium and Ratliff(Odessa) are the 2 biggest high school only stadiums, both seat 20,000(I believe).

My home town has a 10,000 seat stadium. Know what the population is? 13,000 and that stadium is always full on Fridays. That's Texas

I believe it is the fifth largest high school football stadium in Texas.

Alamo Stadium in San Antonio at 23,000

Mesquite Memorial approximately 20,000 (I have seen it also listed at 20,500).

Ratliff in Odesssa at 19,302

Farrington Field at 18,500 in Fort Worth

Allen Eagles stadium in Allen at 18,000

In the article it said that the Allen stadium is the largest used by one school. Is that correct? We played Allen last year and the band took up the entire field, had to be close to 650 in the band.

HOLY COW!!! That IS a pretty stadium! But it chaps my hide at the same time! Keller ISD has FOUR 5-A schools sharing one stadium, and I guarantee you it doesn't sit 20,000!! Thursday night games are really hard on these students (not to mention their parents)!!
Well, at least our last "bond pkg" included turfing the practice fields.

There was another 60-70 million put into the school itself. The stadium is not strictly for football use, multi use facility including concernts and other attractions that will pull $$ into the community and surrounding areas. It was not an investment in football, but an investment into the community and area.

Allen has one high school with teacher to student ratios topping 30 to 40 to one ratios. That's teaching only at most 25% percent of students!

Last I checked this was still one of the better public school districts for a kid to go to school in in the area. Outstanding graduation rate with a student body that does move on to college. New families still moving here for some reason....

I guess something is being done well in Allen, but thanks for the facts Total always love to hear from a friend!

I'm not concerned with only Allen. Sports and athletics are more important than education. How many teachers' salaries would that 60M have funded for inner-city students? Our priorities are wrong as a country and state and justifying it by saying Allen is doing good, doesn't help our education standing compared to the rest of the world.

99.5% of the students in Allen will not play sports past High School. Yet 100% of them will need an education after High School.

So you are saying 100% of students who finish their highschool education in Allen will not be educated enough to do whatever it is they choose to do next, be it college, trade school, or 7-11 clerk?

Apples and oranges. The Allen stadium was paid for with funds from a designated bond approved by the local voters. The funds could only be used on the designated capital expenditures - construction, equipment, etc.

Wealthy districts like Allen have already paid hundreds of millions of dollars into Robin Hood to subsidize other districts. The funds taken from the district for Robin Hood are the additional funds that would otherwise go to the district's operating budget (teachers' salaries, elective programs etc.). Bonds like the one used for the Allen stadium are not subject to Robin Hood recapture and help insure local benefits are derived from local tax revenue.

How much money do we collectively spend annually on club soccer? Surely that money would be better spent on education as well. Many would say our priorities are wrong. Regardless, we have the right to spend our money as we wish . . . and so do the taxpayers in Allen.

We still live in America and we can choose to spend our money however we wish, although the left would love to do otherwise. If you don't like how your school district spends its money then move.

Post by Guest on 09/08/12, 08:18 pm

I'm wondering if the response would be different if the City of Allen, not AISD, decided to hold a vote on a $120M bond package that was going to be used to build an 18,000 seat outdoor stadium and a 1500 seat performing arts center.

The bonds would be paid off by the city via future property tax revenue, as well as revenue generated by using the stadium to host UIL playoff games, the Tom Landry Kickoff Classic (which is moving from SMU's Ford Stadium to Eagle Stadium starting in 2013), the NFL Network's "Texas vs. the Nation" college all-star game (coming to Eagle Stadium next January), regional marching band competitions, High School graduations, etc. Oh by the way, the City would allow Allen H.S. to play it's home football games in the Stadium for no cost.

The performing arts center would be state of the art and again would be paid for through future tax revenue and rental fees, and the City would allow Allen ISD to use it for band, orchestra, choral, and theatre arts performances at no cost to the school.

One of the large selling points to Allen residents would be the ancillary impact that hosting the above mentioned events would have on the local economy and businesses in Allen. Restaurants, hotels, shopping, etc...

Again, if it was the City of Allen that did this, and not AISD, would the reaction be different, and if so, why?
