Keeping Up With Our County Neighbor

In an exclusive interview with a Jacksboro ISD Board Member*, I learned that the new Tiger Stadium (which is behind the new school under construction in the above pic) will have artificial turf. _________________ * Meaning I saw my buddy David Spiller at the courthouse.

I remember the days when Jacksboro would hire the dads in the oil field and their kids would play football and the Tigers won state several years. Those days are gone I guess.

I think I'll get up and go to the bathroom now. There doesn't seem to be much action in this game

The new Bowie HS stadium will have turf, too.

Well, that's the sort of hard-hitting reporting that keeps me coming back to this blog.

Now they will for sure win state! It doesn't require talent or hard work, just artificial turf.

So how do you feel about a coming proposal for 12 million on Eagle Stadium ?

M-M said...

12:42 I don't feel very good about that. Is that to build a new one or to spend on the current one?

For your information, Jacksboro has made the playoffs in football for 14 of the last 16 years. That includes beating Boyd last year. In boys' basketball, they beat both Decatur and Bridgeport this week in the Wise County league.

I'm just sayin...

Looks like they should have spent a little of that cash to make that new high school look better. That looks like crap. It's amazing that we allow our school districts to spend millions of dollars for football stadiums instead of bettering our academics and our school buildings. Decatur is stupid to consider a 12 million dollar stadium. Boyd is also stupid for building a 5 million dollar stadium.

Turf makes a whole lot more sense long term. What makes more sense is for proximate school districts to join together and share a facility; schedule accordingly.

If the Decatur board spends 12 million for turf and indoor practice field they need to be replaced........asap before they can do any more damage.

They have already lowered academic standards by letting kids who didn't pass walk at graduation.

However, I think they will try. Two board members have sons playing for Story, two others are wannabes, and three others are sorta along for the ride.

If proposed, it will surely signal their priorities.

1:28--It doesn't take much to make the playoffs in this time and day. In fact, you have to be really bad not to make them. Now almost every team makes the playoffs so the coaches can brag about making them 14 of the last 16 years. Whoopi!!

M-M, Jacksboro will not win State. They don't have an indoor practice facility!

Jacksboro may have turf but Decatur still has Coy O'neal running the chain gang, giving it that old Decatur twist!

RPM - That's right, thanks for pointing that out. Ya gotta have that indoor practice facility.

I'm sure that was in the budget while JISD was collecting a windfall on oil & gas revenue... now the remaining property owners get to fund it...

And just how long has it been since Jacksboro or Bowie has spent millions of dollars on schools or stadiums? It's been Y E A R S!
Decatur can not keep up with every NEWBI building or stadium built in the county! I can't believe the amount of money poured down the drain in the DISD system and still NO ONE is happy! Now you're saying they are talkin a 12 mil stadium? INSANE!

Think ole JISD is spending power plant money rather than oil and gas. Either way they are building a complete school system K-12

Artificial turf hasn't been used since the 80's. It's field turf or synthetic grass - you can't be politically correct in some areas and not others.
