Texas Football Stadium Guide
Yes this in my book. Rather that give you a biased review I'll tell you how it came about.
In 1998 I published TexasBob.com because I wanted to learn how to create and publish a website. I like Texas and Texas History so my first content was Texas historical documents. Then a little later I added Texas travel destinations, then off beat places to eat in Texas. Later I started reviewing books about Texas, etc. Then in the fall of 2004 I was trying to answer the question, “What is the largest stadium in Texas specifically built for High School football?” and in doing that I gathered a lot of stadium information. That’s when I decide to add football stadium information to TexasBob.com. What is more Texas than football? By the end of that football season I had 136 stadiums listed and the response from football fans was overwhelming.
Today the TexasBob.com stadium database list about 1200 stadiums state wide and the website has over 13 million page views a year. With this success I asked myself another question, “Would a print version of the stadium database be a useful tool for coaches, fans and football officials?” I hope so, only time will tell.
“What is the largest stadium in Texas built specifically for High School football?” The historic Alamo Stadium in San Antonio, Texas. It was built by the Civilian Conservation Corp in 1940 with a seating capacity of 23,000.
