There's a reason every good high school football movie is based in Texas. Here in the Lone Star State Friday nights are revered and our young men in football pads exalted to legends in their hometowns. In fact as of last year, Texas is only second to Florida (by two players) as the state with the most players in the NFL.


Where I graduated high school we shared our football stadium with our crosstown rivals, and quite unimpressively there were only bleachers on one side of the field. I'll tell you this, it's kinda awkward yelling obscenities about an opposing player only to find out their mom is sitting right next to you.

That's not something you'll have to worry about at these stadiums though.

Texas is home to many impressive high school football stadiums, and the price tags on the 10 biggest range from a staggering $38 million to an even more staggering $72 million. Interestingly, the stadium with the largest capacity only comes in at No. 4 on the list. And the stadium taking the top spot actually holds less fans than all but the stadium in the 10th spot.

Any guesses which school lands at No. 1? You may be surprised. Let's dive into it, the ten most expensive high school football stadiums according to Click2Houston.
