1. Union’s Union-Tuttle Stadium: Former Superintendent Wesley Jarman’s brainstorm was ahead of its time in 1976, when curious people drove by to gawk as the large, concrete grandstands rose out of what was then a near-prairie. Today, with its $35 million facelift, it is once again a showplace.

Texas honorable mention: Pennington Field in Hurst. It’s the comfortable home stadium of Hurst-Euless-Bedford Independent School District teams and a popular neutral-site venue for neighboring Metroplex schools. There is ample press box seating for a medium-sized college football game.
