LEESBURG - It's official - by next football season, Leesburg High will have a new concrete stadium facility to replace the outdated and inadequate bleachers on the east side of Memorial Field.

There are no ifs anymore - Mack Nigel, engineer at Dura-Stress Concrete, begins drawing up plans next week, and the Leesburg High Stadium Committee, headed by Frank Ezell, is busy now arranging financing.


The facility will seat 3,000 originally, and will be built so expansion to 5,000 is possible later. It will have room underneath for concession stands, rest rooms, shower and gym facilities - all to be added later. It will be built of prestressed concrete, given at cost by Dura-Stress.

Work will begin as soon as possible. The Stadium Committee is aiming for a starting date right after the football season, when the field is no longer in use - or this summer, after school is over.
