If you’re looking for old-school feel, and powerhouse football, you’re going to love No. 2 on our Oklahoma City-area football stadium rankings.

Millwood’s L.W. Good Stadium and Leodies Robinson Field is full of tradition, from the hills surrounding the field, to the winning football being played on it.

The Falcons have won four state championships in the last 11 years and five in all, while playing dominant football on the home field. With the field surrounded on three sides by steep grass hills, the stadium has a feel like no other.

The setup allows it to accommodate more fans than the bleachers will actually hold, and the concrete ramp in the southeast corner provides one of the most unique entrances for the home team coming onto the field.

How to get there from downtown OKC: Take I-40 eastbound to I-235 North. Follow I-235 to I-44West and exit on Martin Luther King Blvd. Take MLK north and the stadium will be on the right.

Millwood’s remaining home schedule: The Falcons host Northeast on Friday and Lexington in Week 10.
