FRISCO — The Ford Center in Frisco opened its doors today. It wasn’t America’s Team who got to take the first steps onto the field, though. It was Lone Star High School!
Yeah, besides being the Cowboys practice facility, this 12,000 seat arena will also be the home to Frisco ISD football. The massive stadium, pristine locker rooms and new Nike jersey reveal via hologram reminded us all that Texas High School Football can do it up just as big as the Boys!
“I always expressed it, that when I see the thought of this enterprise I picture joining at the hip with high school athletics,” said Jerry Jones. “I picture the high school quarterback of Frisco walking on the field to play a game and visiting with Tony Romo who’s walking off the field finishing a practice and the two of them chatting about each other’s game.”
The action really gets going here next Saturday when the Ford Center will host an all-day football extravaganza with 4 straight games featuring all eight Frisco ISD football teams.
At this point, the phrase “Everything’s Bigger In Texas” just feels like an understatement.
“This is a championship venue,” Jones said. “It will inspire not only the students here at Frisco but it will inspire the Dallas Cowboys.”
Well, the Cowboys haven’t won a title in 21 years and no Frisco ISD team has ever won a football state championship so hopefully, this mini-Jerry World inspires them both, soon!
