I still wanna see them go to GN one day. Just to blow people’s minds. :lol:

 

Maybe if BOA ever decides to rotate GN around and hold it in AT&T stadium.

Or the new McKinney ISD stadium. I marched there for the UIL Region 25 Marching Contest, and that stadium has some great acoustics!

I just watched Daniel Montoya’s video tour of the new Hays CISD high school, Johnson HS. Amazing facility and incredible band hall. I bet we’ll be hearing more from this new school and it’s band in the coming years.

The only peculiar thing is, they are the Johnson Jaguars. Just like CTJ. Fortunately their colors are vastly different (black and gold), but still that could get a bit confusing.

Anyway, it’s a gorgeous and impressive new school. I know those kids are excited to attend high school there in a few short weeks!

Here’s the video tour. https://youtu.be/6m0iOigAS6g

Completely unrelated and late, but just curious, why is the At&t stadium so horrible with sound? Are the acoustics not great?

"Not great" would be a compliment.  It was definitely built for football with little consideration for acoustics/concerts.

I go to Princeton, which has an enrollment around 1200 (I've heard as high as 1500, but I don't know how reliable that figure is) and my mom thinks that is still too big. She went to school in the late 80s at Quitman (small town in East TX) and she says Princeton is too big because the teachers don' know the kids, as in know a lot about their life, what they are going through, involved in the community, etc., not just names to faces and a few fun facts. I went to Texarkana Pleasant Grove my freshman year (2016) which has an enrollment around 700, and my mom says that was better but not good enough. I think what it is is that my mom's opinion influenced my own opinion

PG was probably closer to around 600 kids when you were here, interestingly enough though the community and district is growing faster than ever. Freshman class is almost 50% bigger than the senior class thanks to lots of move-ins. Only time will tell if it will speed up enough to push the school up a division (400ish kids is a lot of growing to do to hit 5A), but it would be very interesting. Not sure how the band would fair though, private lesson teachers and techs aren't exactly abundant in this area and those are pretty key to being successful in the larger divisions.
