High School Builds $60 Million Stadium: A Texas high school is opening its new 18,000-seat stadium, which includes an upper deck, 38-foot-wide HD video screen and six corporate sponsors. The pricetag for the taxpayer funded stadium in the Dallas suburb of Allen is $60 million. The team's opening game at Eagle Stadium is against Southlake Carroll, another Dallas/Fort Worth school ranked No. 1 preseason in Class 5A. Our intention is not to recoup the money it cost to build the stadium," school district spokesman Tim Carroll said.
