Allen Eagle Stadium to re-open June 5th


by Jeff Fisher

It’s official, Allen High School‘s Eagle Stadium will re-open on June 5th for the school’s graduation.

The stadium was closed last year because of cracks in the concrete on the stadium concourse. Allen was forced to play every game on the road as a result, but that didn’t stop the Eagles from winning their third straight state title and a third straight High School Football America mythical national championship.

NBC 5 reports that the Allen School District will get $2.5 million dollars from the contractor and architectural firm behind the school’s flawed $60 million stadium.
