Post Your Stadium updates here!

With Montwood getting stadium lights, YISD schools getting turf installed and Jeff being approved for construction of a new stadium, I'd like to see what other additions the el paso area schools are doing to their stadiums

Re: Post Your Stadium updates here!

Del Valle's 2016 senior class recently added this to their stadium's press box. Looks awesome at night!

I drove by the stadium today on the dirt road behind the family dollar store and it's still being worked on. the turf hasn't been laid out yet. from what I saw, it is still in the base stages with the drainage system being put in place.

Re: Post Your Stadium updates here!

Stopped by today and the senior football players were repainting the stadium. Hopefully everything will be done by midnight madness

Re: Post Your Stadium updates here!

Riverside high school is the best!!!

OH YEAH!!!!!!. I played in the very first game at Ranger Stadium in '79. I can still feel the excitement.

Re: Post Your Stadium updates here!

Quarles Brooks stadium just got a Whole foods Market. Awesome!

Re: Post Your Stadium updates here!

Glad all the stadiums are getting a personal touch. Love the stab by the eastwood delegation at the rest of the city with the EL Paso's finest deal lol.

Riverfront stadium turf will be white and the lines burnt orange with the endzones navy blue.


Had me fooled for a minute when I saw that post. lol! I didn't think YISD was going to approve colored turf.

Re: Post Your Stadium updates here!

Jumbotron going up at the SAC! Looks cool, can't wait to see it in person.

It's way too small for the size of the SAC but something is better than nothing and this stadium project enhancement was about time!!! But I still say it should have been placed higher somehow.

Re: Post Your Stadium updates here!

That screen is not small. Look at the size of that man lift basket.That lift basket is at least 4ft long and 3ft high. So picture its size now.

That's kind of what I was thinking...looks like a pretty good size. Need to stop by and check it out!

I didn't think of using the lift basket to determine size of screen but still what if it's a Minions lift basket with Minions doing the installing?

AztecEmpire that's a huge screen. That SAC screen looks like the size of the screen at the Sun Bowl. I can't wait to see it functioning during a game at night.

It's a big jumbo screen. Use this picture of the old scoreboard at the SAC to get an idea of its actual size.



Thank you EP Gridiron for your continued support.

Re: Post Your Stadium updates here!
Re: Post Your Stadium updates here!

I'd say DV's field is about 90% complete


Re: Post Your Stadium updates here!

chaparral lobo stadium just got changed. lets see what happens with new bleachers

Re: Post Your Stadium updates here!

Re: Post Your Stadium updates here!

That SAC jumbotron is awesome but it looks ugly tacky on that old brick wall. It's like putting a expensive Picasso work of art in a hobo's or homeless dude's home cardboard box wall.

People can never just be content and satisfied. Something good comes along and people have to find negativity in it. SMH!!!

Re: Post Your Stadium updates here!

Exactly Cats32. Majority of El Pasoans are ungrateful, unappreciative and unsupportive. These people always find negativity in positivity and they have this bevahavior locked down pat.

I think it looks great!

Wow I wonder what the hold up is with DV's field? I saw on the boosters fb page that the field isn't ready and midnight madness is tbd.

Re: Post Your Stadium updates here!

Maybe Del Valle is gettng special treatment like more money going into the field and the stadium than other YISD schools. So they are probably just taking more time with the planning. Just my guess.

Re: Post Your Stadium updates here!

I heard that there was a mechanical failure on one of the tractor or something and it caught fire and they had to wait for a new one which took a while. it delayed things for them.

Yes a tractor caught fire so they had to wait for Eastwood to finish .
Then several pipes bursted causing another delay. Just this past week while working on the new lights and fence for the baseball and softball field another pipe broke furthering another delay. According to the practice calendar the field should be ready earliest Wednesday afternoon noon practice or latest Friday night at midnight madness. Fingers crossed

Re: Post Your Stadium updates here!

All YISD schools turfs all looking well, I like the multi turf color, to me what makes the turf fields nice to see like is that all out of bounds areas from the 25 to the endzones are in the school colors, it brings more out of the turf. Also Riverside (idk about Hanks or DV, BA or Ysleta) but Eastwood, Parkland having sayings like "Home of El Paso's Finest" (EHS) and "Glorious to be a Matador" (PHS), those sayings are really something that adds to the pride of the schools. So good job on that, and that Jumbotron at the S.A.C. is amazing, Now the S.A.C. can compete with some of the other big name school district stadiums around the state!

I believe all Yisd stadiums will get the school's motto on the field. DV's will sat "One Family, One Destiny"

Sadly, DV's stadium still isn't ready and their midnight madness will be at blackie cheser park this friday. I hope it's ready by the time the season starts.

Re: Post Your Stadium updates here!

Re: Post Your Stadium updates here!

Here we go again!

Does anyone know what the deal is with Ysleta's football field?

I heard it is still not close to being ready.

Do they know the season is about to kick off ??

Re: Post Your Stadium updates here!

Who cares they should be happy it's happeneing. B

Re: Post Your Stadium updates here!

Well that's very mature...
Just figured someone had some info on this.

Re: Post Your Stadium updates here!

It's construction stuff happens. They should be happy about the upgrade. There are 12 days until the first game. Folks need to learn how to be happy.

Re: Post Your Stadium updates here!

Finally ready!

Re: Post Your Stadium updates here!

Hello. I'm curious about Franklin Stadium. Google Maps shows it as having stands on only one side, but I have also seen pictures that show stands on both sides. When were the second set of stands added?

Re: Post Your Stadium updates here!

The topic is updates! There are no new attractions at Franklin.... so go look through older threads. Smh

Google street view image (taken Aug 2015) shows stands on both sides. The aerial image w/ stands on one side is from May 2014.

Re: Post Your Stadium updates here!

I think initial construction was completed on one side in time for the 2014 season. After the season, the other side bleachers was completed for 2015.

Re: Post Your Stadium updates here!

Still years late, by the way Franklin doesn't need to upgrade the stadium, an up graded field house would be ideal, **** locker room looks like a 6th grade PE changing room😂... wait the turf is faced the wrong way too! Cmon cougars.
