Amazing! The Best New Jersey High School Football Stadium
When it comes to High School football New Jersey is right in the midst of the best in all of America. We have a love for our high schools and football is one of the most visible sports in the community. We have numerous high school athletes who go on to play in college and sometimes even in the NFL. According to Red Label Sports, as of 2022, “New Jersey might not be the first place you think of when naming off NFL players, but The Garden State has produced a few gems over the years. The state is larger than many may think with over 9.2 million residents and currently has 56 active players in the league which ranks tenth on states with the most NFL players.” So as you can see we do pretty good when it comes to High School football here in New Jersey.
What about when it comes to the stadiums we have here in Jersey for High School football? Do you feel your school is good or needs a major overhaul? Stadium Talk did an article that featured “Best High School Football Stadium in Every State” So let’s look at the pick for us here in the Garden State, which stadium was selected as the best in Jersey?
We have to travel to Hudson County and look to Union City High School. The Soaring Eagles call Roosevelt Stadium home. Originally built in 1936 it went through a major renovation and upgrade in 2009 and it’s one of the most unique high school stadiums in America.
According to Stadium Talk, “There is no stranger location for any stadium on this list. Union City High School's football stadium is on the roof of the school. The stadium itself has been around, in name only, since the 1930s, but when the school was razed and rebuilt in the same spot for $180 million in the late 2000s, the most densely populated city in the U.S. had to think outside the box. So they put the football stadium on the roof.” That’s right it’s literally on the roof, that’s a unique stadium for sure.
Roosevelt Stadium holds 2,600 people and if you’re ever in the area on a fall Saturday it’s worth a look if the Soaring Eagles are playing. What’s the most unique stadium in your area?
