Allen high school (the third biggest school in Texas) has just put the finishing touches on their $60 million football complex. Yes, go ahead and read that again. 60 million big ones.
Back in 2009, residents voted 63% in favor of a bond to build the new facility for the high school, which houses over 5,000 students. The school's campus already contains an indoor practice facility, film room, and separate locker rooms for football, soccer, basketball and track.
The new field has a seating capacity of 18,000. According to the NCAA's attendance figures, assuming that they sell out every game, Allen would beat the average attendance marks of 19 FBS programs (including Nevada and Western Kentucky), and all but about 12 of the top FCS schools.
Take a look at the finished product. Very impressive.
