In June 1938 the PWA approved an $8,181 grant toward the construction of Borger High School’s football stadium. However, due to delays in obtaining the grant the stadium had been already built. “The school board undoubtedly will seek to keep the money to make improvements on the stadium and increase the seating capacity,” the Borger Daily Herald stated.
The stadium was then two blocks north of the high school. Presently, the school system’s football facilities are located at Johnson Park.
