Carrollwood Day's stadium nearly ready

When Carrollwood Day School opens its inaugural season of 11-man football Sept. 5 at home against Leesburg First Academy, it will do so at a new facility. This summer, the school has built an on-campus stadium that is just about finished.

"The grass is being put down (Tuesday) and (Wednesday)," Patriots coach Lane McLaughlin said.

The stadium, which cost more than $200,000, will seat about 500, McLaughlin said. It will have stands on one side of the field and trees on the other. Behind the stands, fans will find a view of a lake that borders school property. CDS hopes to add a press box next fall.

"It's an Ivy League setting," McLaughlin said. "It should be ready in about two weeks."

Pfffft .... Capacity, water fountains/no water fountains, bouncing death trap, ability to fry eggs on the empty seat beside you ..... None of that matters. All that matters is that it's a stadium and it's on their campus.  8)

Yeah, but don't you know?  Doak Campbell looked the same way when it was built.  A few expansions and they'll be seating 90,000...
