Best / Worst Facilities

Recommended Posts

List the 3 Best Facilities your team has played at in the past 5 years, then name the 3 Worst Facilities your team has played at in the past 5 years. (If you want to name facilities you have seen but not played at that is fine also.) PLEASE JUST LIST 1A or 2A FOOTBALL FACILITIES ONLY, as I'm Just curious about who has some of the best and worst, but also interested to see how the facilities compare to the team records or performances the past 5 years.

They're AAA now but were AA when we played em but Gatlinburg has the nicest facilities weve ever been to in TN.

Top 3 current 1-2A we have been to

Happy Valley has a beautiful field , stadium , and atmosphere but you dress in a small weight room.

Sullivan North is nice, locker room is a mile away but its nice , field is nice and stadium is HUUUUGE! you can tell it was once a much larger school.

Greenback has the best 1A natural grass surface ive ever seen, Been a while since we have been there may be different now.

It's in NC but we used to play Cherokee NC and its by far the overall nicest facilities we have ever been to for a small school. Cant hide that casino money i guess but its A+ Awesome!

I dont really want to list "Worst" because those places are usually were you have a coach and a couple parents working the hardest to keep up what they have. Some of my favorite places to go dont have great facilities , but has awesome people , good kids , and a cool atmosphere.

1.South Pitt has to be the best in 1A 

2. I am biased but Greenbacks field and the trucks surrounding the field make it a special home field environment.

3. 2A  Oneida and the Rez is a special place to me I always loved playing there.

4. Trousdale County has a phenomenal facility top 3 in 2A

5. I have never seen Huntingdon in person but I have seen it on film and I would say it has to be #2 behind South Pitt in 1A

6. Coalfield has a nice field and the stadium and bleachers are very nice.

The worst

1. Sunbright is awful it is better than when I played but that is not saying much one corner of an endzone was 5 foot higher than the rest of the field.

2. Kings academy pure crap zero seating for visitors and bad lighting.

3. Wartburg  field is crap I don't think they own a mower.

Our (Greenback) field grass rivals anyone thats not plastic.

SP has a awesome place for football with nice facilities.

Huntingdon on film looks like a college field.

Trousdale is up there also.

Oneida my second favorite place to watch a game other than GB!

Worst-Hancock their first year was the worst i had ever seen dry it may be better now.

Cloudland is the worst i have seen in the last 5 years HANDS DOWN.When its wet down all night before your game its even worse!

Sunbright is rough

Wartburg i agree with helmet they let the goats eat it because they dont have a mower!

Hancock aint bad now, I've definitely seen much worse. We played Cloudland back in 06 in a mud pit. We washed the jerseys with a pressure washer in the parking lot before we could put em in the washer! Referees were running out of their shoes it was rough! I loved playing up there though! if it wasnt so far away we would still play them some.
