A press box is a special area where reporters, announcers, coaches, and videographers sit at a sports event. During the summer the old press box was demolished, and the creation of a new one was started.  According to Principal Dr. Ted Happel “The old press box was a safety hazard due to its collapsing walls and stairs.”

“It was a much needed procedure. The old press box was very dangerous to be in, we just didn’t want anyone getting hurt,” Happel stated.

Activities Director Ben Owens agreed with Happel.

“The press box was falling apart basically. It was time to take it down,” Owens said.

Even with the early start of the construction, the assembling of the press box is not yet done and it has caused disturbances with events normally held at the stadium. 

“Yeah, we had to have our first home game at Lindenwood, which is the neighboring university. It was pretty weird not playing at our actual football field,” junior football player Rylan Kissel said.
