Living up to the saying “Everything’s bigger in Texas,” the Lone Star State doesn’t fall short when it comes to mega-sizing its high school football stadiums.

Most high schools have a football field and bleachers on their campus. But those are only used for practice and middle school football games.

And despite having a multi-million dollar stadium constructed specifically for them, high school teams travel to professional NFL venues for some of their biggest games such as the state championships and playoffs.

However, in the regular season, fans will gather locally at luxurious district stadiums.

Here are the top 10 most expensive high school stadiums in Texas:
