As the saying goes, everything is bigger in Texas — especially high school football stadiums.
The McKinney Independent School District recently got 63 percent of taxpayers' support on funding a $62.8 million, 12,000-seat high school football stadium. It's one of the priciest high school football stadiums in the nation.
This new stadium for McKinney, located about 20 minutes outside of Dallas, is the latest in a Texas high school football stadium arms-race of sorts.
