Architecture Overview:

Designed with flexibility in mind, this 8,000-seat stadium meets the needs for football, soccer, marching band competitions, outdoor concerts, hosting regional and state field events, and more. Mindful of its residential neighbors, the stadium's lighting uses special cut off baffles to direct light toward the field and away from neighbors. To minimize the vertical height of the stadium, a partial earthen bowl was created with the lower seating deck constructed on the sloping bank. The economical aluminum plank and galvanized steel construction is enhanced with brick piers, concrete sign panels, elevator tower, support areas, and large graphics which screen the underside of the seating.
