Welcome to the CarolinaPreps.com Stadium Project
Hello NC High School Football Fans,
This is a collection of high-resolution, and high-quality photos taken at nearly every high school football stadium across the Tarheel State, with some exceptions being a few newer schools. A first of its kind undertaking, the Stadium Project began in 2006 with an unplanned visit to D.H. Conley High School in Greenville, while traveling down state route 43 towards the coast for vacation, but since then, this yearly tour has taken me on adventures through all 100 counties, and to nearly every small town in our state. This journey has allowed me to make new friends, eat at some incredible small-town BBQ and hamburger joints, and most importantly, has allowed me to showcase hundreds of schools and their facilities through these photos.
While the primary objective has always been to bring you, the fans, these extraordinary images, it’s become a labor of love to me. While I typically only take photos during the summer months, when the grass is green, I’ve thoroughly enjoyed the scenic drives through our backroads, from the mountains to the coast, and through it all, promoting the state that I love.
It’s no secret that I look forward to the tour each year. It’s got to the point now where I return to schools years later just to take new photos, especially when schools make major upgrades to their facilities, or whenever I upgrade my own cameras, just so I can bring you better photos. As this project has evolved, I’ve become quite the perfectionist, and I truly want these images to be the best that they can be, so it puts forth a good showing for the schools on display.
Please enjoy these photos, and share them with your friends, especially those that enjoy High School Football. It’s been my honor to go out and bring them to you, and I hope they can be enjoyed for generations to come
