Oak Grove: A new stadium that has swagger

MIDWAY – Unfortunately when most new high schools are constructed, the local school systems find themselves going well over budget and to shave on expenses, they cut corners on athletic facilities.  However, this is not the case with the new stadium and athletic facilities at Oak Grove High School in Davidson County.

This place is top-notch all the way around and has the swagger and charm of an older, more seasoned stadium.  The Soul Blue and brick accents really give this stadium a great feel that is very pleasing to the eye.

Add to it that head football coach Mark Holcomb and athletic director Stan Smith has done an amazing job with the turf maintenance, and you get one outstanding football stadium.

This place breaks all the rules for a new stadium build, and I hope that in the future more school systems will look to Oak Grove for how to construct a new stadium.
