    Default Stadium Pictures

    As an avid fan of Ky. High School football, different stadiums are always an interest of mine. Every time I visit a town across the bluegrass I try to make time to drive by and look at football facilities. Would you tech- savvy folks mind posting pictures of your local stadiums?

    I played in a JV game on that field back in the late 70's and I think it looks the same as it did back then.

    I was thinking Woodford's stadium is new-ish. Am I wrong? I know this stadium is at the community park. There is what appears to be a former football field with a track surrounding it at the high school.

    I thought the field looked awful in the picture. Thus my comment. If it's a new field/place, they need to re-evaluate IMO.

    Someone posted the Woodford pic in another thread, I copied it from there. Maybe it is their old field. ????

    I am honestly not trying to start something. Anyone that takes it in that direction should be blamed for doing so. I am simply looking for an answer to use as guidance for others (if repeatable).

    How did the School Board, community, parents and students at Belfry get such strong facilities? Did they save up capital expenditures and do it all at once to get the benefit of economies of scale? Was there a public / private partnership? Are there naming rights on anything (stadium, baseball field, auditorium, classrooms, lunchroom, etc.)? Did they make solid investments or own land that appreciated in value?

    Interested in factual answers, not political diatribes.
