We are so fortunate here in the Northwest to have some of the most scenic venues around to watch high school football games. Beyond that, the game day atmospheres provide very incredibly unique experiences from town to town. For this week’s #NEIpoll we are asking you to tell us what stadium in the Northwest is your favorite to catch a game in. We know you all love your own stadium, so lets try picking an opponent’s home turf.
We are providing you with what our top stadium picks are – with Ryland and Scott picking their favorite venues in Washington, and Jordan and Taylor offering up their favorite’s in Oregon.
To submit your favorite stadium, simply tweet using the hashtag #NEIpoll telling what the stadium is and why you like it the best. You can even include a picture if you have one.
Ryland – “Pop Keeney is my favorite place to watch a game. It was great before renovations, but the money spent a few years back has made it a premier venue in the state. It is home to Inglemoor, Woodinville and Bothell – three of the more consistent teams in the State of Washington. All three schools do a great job at creating an awesome atmosphere, but when the Bothell Cougars are home there is no better place in the state. The Blue Train is hands down the best.”
Scott – “You’d be hard-pressed to find a venue anywhere in the state, maybe even the entire region, that provides the scenery and atmosphere you get when attending a game at Mount Si. The postcard-like backdrop of the mountain, and the energetic crowd on game night make this place truly special. When it comes to their Wildcats, they really put on a show in Snoqualmie.”
Jordan – “I am a fan of a lot of the stadiums in the Northwest, and when it comes to Oregon, Tigard HS is the one I think is best. Large home side grandstand that fills to capacity and sits on top of the game creating noise. Outstanding community support and youth programs that fill the track and surrounding area. One of the better atmospheres around”
Taylor – “Spiegelberg Stadium is historic and when the two Medford school get together, there might not be a better place to be in not just Southern Oregon, but Oregon altogether.”
