Allen High School in Texas nears completion of new $60 million football stadium
The poll:Allen High in suburban Dallas is nearing the completion of a $60 million upgrade that will transform its football stadium into a college-style coliseum.
The state-of-the-art behemoth will boast an 18,000-seat horseshoe seating area with an upper deck, a video scoreboard, a two-tier press box, concession stands as well as an arts auditorium, training room and indoor practice arena for the golf team
