Yesterday I visited head football coach Scott Miller and South Iredell High School. This will certainly be one of the teams to watch in the 3A this season. 

 

I was able to take new photos of the football facilities and it was apparent that they've put a lot of effort into upgrading and beautifying their stadium. 

 

Enjoy the photos!

Very small. Drastically need more seating and double the visitor bleachers. Following is way to big for such limited seating. Love the music and announcer there. People parking cars are the most organized and friendly of any place I've been. ROTC kids working are the best.

I agree with you GDG, the visitor side is small and maybe over time they will make progress on that. But I know since I went years ago a lot of progress had been done. It looks like even more has been done since last year. The stadium and facilities and all is looking real good.

True with South being a Big 3A school now and could well go 4A next time when they realign they sure need more seating. The games I went to last year brought out good crowds and I seen then more seating was in need. I will also add this that the school I think was open in 1966 and the stadium is 50+ years old and yes the stadium is behind time and is need of upgrading on size.

Speaking of which-on the previous version of the stadium project Chris put the estimated capacity.  I don't see anything like that for the current version, but I liked to see those numbers in order to get an idea about the size of the place.


Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience.”

I guess they've done a lot with what they have but they don't have much.  I don't mean to be critical but South Iredell needs a new stadium.

I remember the days that the home side had to walk over to the visitor side to go to the concession stand. Since then they built another concession on the home side. They also have what I call a hut that sells shirts, hats, etc.. Progress had been made over the years. I feel like over time it will get better with these other things.

South iredell has probably one of the worst away sides bc it's too close together n compacted and also limited seating!

Like when Mooresville, Statesville, AC came there it was pretty much full before the game even started so Many had to stand n also people who did sit down it's pretty close n tight space

Parking isn't bad at SI

Parking has came along ways to what it use to be. They also improved where they sale the tickets. Over all it's not bad but wish more seating could be put in. Especially the visitor side.

Only problem with that is that it's not the schools decision in that regard.... ISS has a rule, whatever gets done to 1 school, gets done to them all. Expanding SI would probably end up having to include expanding/Renovating at WI, and NI as well. And maybe LKN's away side. Don't think this is something that'll happen for a while.

North Iredell I think is a lot worse. My biggest gripe with the away seating at South isn't so much the lack of seating... as much as it's the one old section of bleachers that you feel like you're going to fall off of lol

Statesville got their new auditorium in last couple of years first! Has nothing to do with IB program. Someone said in earlier post what they do for one school they have to do for all. But the only thing they can't do is control how well the boosters and coaches work together to raise $$$$. They all are getting new auditoriums...all I can say is support your booster programs!!!
