Oklahoma City-area football stadium rankings: No. 1, Guthrie
GUTHRIE — We finally made it to No. 1 in our rankings of Oklahoma City-area high school football stadiums.
As we announced in Thursday’s edition of The Oklahoman, our pick as the top area stadium is Guthrie’s Jelsma Stadium.
Here is a link to the story I wrote for Thursday’s paper about Jelsma. It was a fun story to report on because of how passionate Guthrie people are about their stadium — as they should be.
Jelsma is a special place. For the reasons why it is on the list, read my story. I’m going to use this blog post to share some quotes about Jelsma that we didn’t have room for in it.
GUTHRIE JUNIOR QB BRYAN DUTTON
“It’s a lot of fun; it’s really loud. There’s people grilling before the game — it’s got that small college atmosphere to it. The stands are real tight. The whole community gets involved. It’s a real great place to play.
“When I see people that I play against at the mall or wherever, one of the first things they want to talk about is the rock wall and the baseball field. It’s just different; there aren’t a whole lot of places like it.”
