    According to my buddy Texas Bob, here are some interesting seating capacities of a few stadiums.

    Shotwell, Abilene - 15075

    Ratliff, Odessa - 19302

    Abe Martin, Lufkin - 10000

    Rhodes, Katy - 9768

    Dragon, Southlake - 9000

    Pennington, Euless - 12000

    I've attended games in Odessa at the old W.T. Barrett which held approx.
    18k and it was standing room only.

    Katy packs the home side most every game. In '94 against Plano at Kyle Field, those nice guys wouldn't let us sit in the upper deck and we were stretched from end zone to end zone.
    With God........ ALL things are possible.

    there aren't alot of region 4 teams that travel like the valley (as an area) does.
    Don't forget Port-Neches Groves. the largest crowd I've ever seen at a state championship game.

    I'd love to see the North Garland vs Naaman Forest game. I'm sure there'd be plenty of seats for all!

    If PN-G makes the playoffs, NOBODY travels like those guys do.

    Judson? Are you kidding?

    They don't even fill up Comalander most of the time. And that is just down the street from Converse.

    GISD fan bases are smaller than we would wish - but they draw as well as most multiple school suburban school districts (nothing like Plano, Katy, SLC, etc). Naaman had about 4500 at their game vs. Garland this year.

    Garland usually has the most fan support - end of last year notwithstanding. The Owls draw good crowds to playoff games - again, nothing like Trinity or SLC, but okay...

    Actually if you took the equation, (# of fans ) less (# of haters), my guess is the ones of the top of the list are:

    in no particular order:

    ET
    GPNS
    Lufkin
    Abilene

    On the other end of the spectrum:

    Katy
    SLC
    TWHS
    TWCP (they're guilty by association and by way of their school name)
    Highland Park

    Trinity has a good following but I'm not sure I'd put them in the top five. I was really impressed with Permian in the playoffs. Those folks know how to create a game day atmosphere like no other.

    Is this playoffs or just any game?

    Hell yeah, I agree with you. There were more Garland fans at the Plano West v Garland basketball game than there were Naaman fans when we played them in football.

    All those teams are a distant second to Permian hands down.

    A combination of both. Large playoff crowds compared with just regular game crowds separate the bandwagoners.

    Everytime Converse Judson came to Texas Stadium to play for state they had no problems filling up their side of the stadium. When they played Trinity in Round Rock a couple of years ago they represented well. How does Victoria travel redrage?
