Nicest HS football stadium in Mississippi

Petal High School (Hattiesburg suburb) is set to open up its new 7.7 million stadium this coming Saturday hosting nationally ranked South Panola.

Here's some pics of the stadium. It has 3,500 chairback seats and holds 9,000. It is the first HS stadium in Mississippi to have a Video Board on the scoreboard. Also has a state of the art field house as good as many small colleges have.

Let me know what you guys think, and what is the best HS Stadium in Louisiana? West Monroe?

Im hearing that there may be 12,000 people at our first game against South Panola who is the Mississippi version of West Monroe.

Here in Mississippi, YES.

Do a lot of 5A schools in Louisiana have them? What Louisiana HS have the best facilities.

uhh

Brett Favre, Walter Payton, Jerry Rice, Steve McNair, Archie Manning, Jason Campbell, Eric Moulds, Lance Alworth, Jackie Slater, just off the top of my head. I wouldnt call any of those guys irrelevant.

HS football in Mississippi is as good as or better than almost any state in the US with the exception of Texas, California, Florida, Ohio, Louisiana, and Georgia.

just because MS has produced some excellent pros doesnt mean that there are powerhouse teams all throughout the state

OK I get it Louisiana has overall better football than Mississippi.

With that said, do you not feel that Mississippi HS programs couldnt stack up against schools from Arkansas, Tennessee, Alabama, South Carolina, and Kentucky?

Played at Philadelphia HS and led them to the State championship his Sr. Year.

Mississippi has legit HS programs such as South Panola, Wayne County, Moss Point, Madison Central, Oak Grove, Meridian, West Point, Olive Branch, Picayune, etc just to name a few.

dont let them get to you.

mississippi and louisiana are both pretty rural in general. most places are poor and cant afford beautiful stadiums or fields but do produce talent.

zachary has an awesome field. best i have seen around here.

Denham Springs is supposedly putting in field turf. Louisiana and Mississippi actually are No. 1 and No. 2 per capita for producing NFL players or at least they were.

Im guessing your referring to Eric Moulds, but the guy is legit. He was a 1st round NFL draft pick who had over 10,000 career recieving yds on 764 catches and 49 career TDs. He was a 4 time pro bowler as well.

If your talking about Lance Alworth he is a NFL Hall of famer who played HS ball in Brookhaven, MS.

If your talking about Jackie Slater he is a NFL hall of famer from Jackson, MS.

Jason Campbell was a first round draft pick and played his HS ball at Taylorsville, HS and had been a starting QB in the NFL for the past 6 years.
