Oklahoma City-area high school football stadium rankings: No. 5, Yukon
YUKON–We’ve reached the top five of our Oklahoma City-area high school football stadium countdown, and this week’s entry still has that new-stadium smell.
We based our choices on facilities, uniqueness and home-field advantage. We will unveil a new stadium every Tuesday, wrapping up with our pick as the top area high school football stadium on Tuesday, Nov. 2.
No. 5 on the list is Yukon’s brand-new Miller Stadium.
Why it’s on the list: Miller Stadium is the crown jewel of Yukon’s new high school campus, which cost more than $80 million in all, with about $17 million dedicated to athletic facilities.
The 6,000-seat stadium has a video screen and scoreboard on the north end, with a large building on the south end that houses the locker rooms, coaches’ offices, two weight rooms and other amenities for the football team, and all of the school’s athletic teams to take advantage of.
With a FieldTurf surface and state-of-the-art track, the stadium could host playoff and state championship events for other classes and other sports as well.
How to get there from downtown OKC: Take Interstate 40 west to Exit 138-139 for Kilpartick Turnpike/Mustang Rd. Take Mustang Rd. north, which will turn into Yukon Parkway. The stadium is located at 1777 S. Yukon Parkway, on the left side of the road.
Yukon’s 2011 remaining home schedule:
Oct. 14: vs. Putnam City North, 7 p.m.
Oct. 28: vs. Choctaw, 7 p.m.
