High Schools In Texas Spend Big Bucks On Football Stadiums

STEVE INSKEEP, HOST:

Good morning. I'm Steve Inskeep with a high school football rivalry. Actually, it's a football facilities rivalry in Texas. The Allen High School Eagles' stadium cost $60 million. The Chicago Tribune reports the 18,000-seat stadium doesn't have a TV screen quite as giant as the Dallas Cowboys do, but there is a giant screen. Not to be outdone by the $60 million stadium, a rival school district is about to build a stadium costing $70 million. It's MORNING EDITION. Transcript provided by NPR, Copyright NPR.
