Out of about 1,200 Texas high school football stadiums, Jacksonville's Tomato Bowl has been included on a short list of must-see venues by the folks at Dave Campbell's Texas Football and Bob McSpadden of TexasBob.com.
In the article, Matt Stepp points out both the old and the brand-new features — the Tomato Bowl is in the midst of a total make over — that will, no doubt, keep the complex in the spotlight for many years to come.
One of the few stadiums that is located in the center of a downtown area and bordered by a very active Union Pacific railroad line that serves as a major shipping artery, originating near the Mexican border and running all the way to Chicago, the Tomato Bowl is expected to be completed in time for Jacksonville High School graduation on May 24.
Other stadiums that were included on the list ranged from the 1,500-seat Rogan Field in San Saba, that is actually built on top of a cemetery, to the 22,000-seat Allen Independent School District Eagle Stadium, which features all the bells and whistles of today's most modern football venues.
