After three straight years of playing its home games off-campus, St. John Bosco, ranked No. 4 in the High School Football America Preseason 100, will dedicate its brand new $7.2 million stadium Tuesday night. The on-campus facility will be christened the Panish Family Stadium during a ceremony in Bellflower, California.
Named for lead philanthropist and alumnus Brian Panish from the Class of 1975, the stadium will seat 5,000. The home side features both reserved mid-field stadium seats and general admission seating, as well as designated seating for Bosco students and the marching band. The scoreboard spans 30 feet wide and has a state-of-the-art LED video board display and lighting system.
The first game in the stadium will be August 17 when the Braves play Timpview from Utah.
