 Allen High School Football

Due to the program’s popularity and student population, Allen High School was given the opportunity to build a $60 million stadium, which opened on August 31, 2012. Allen Eagle Stadium is the third largest high school stadium in the state, but the largest designed for the use of only one team. The new facility houses a weight room, wrestling practice facility, and indoor golfing facility.

Allen has been using CoachComm’s Connex system for some time but chose to upgrade to Tempest FX when they moved into their new facility. Coach Tom Westerberg shared with us, “With the opening of our 18,000 seat stadium we went to CoachComm to help with a headset solution with all the Wi-Fi we have in the stadium. With our Tempest FX system we have clear communication, which is the most important issue on game night.”

The Allen Eagle football team won State in both 2008 and 2012. After finishing the 2008 regular season with a record of 9–1, the Eagles beat South Grand Prairie, Coppell, Odessa Permian, Euless Trinity, Round Rock Stony Point, and Fort Bend Hightower in the state championship to earn their first ever state title, making them Texas’ Class 5A Division I State Champions. Upon winning the championship, the Allen Eagles were ranked #2 in the nation by both ESPN Rise and Yahoo! Rivals High School rankings. Most recently, Allen won the Class 5A Division I football state championship game 35-21 against Houston Lamar, at Cowboys Stadium in Arlington, on December 22, 2012.

“When we opened the new stadium we wanted the very best: that’s CoachComm”

In their new stadium, Allen not only uses a Tempest FX system themselves, but also provides a Tempest FX system for any visiting team that wishes to use it. Allen’s coaching staff uses a configuration of 5 up, 9 down. CoachComm is proud to work with such an impressive program and provide this new state-of-the-art facility with superior headset systems. “When we opened the new stadium we wanted the very best: that’s CoachComm,” says Coach Westerberg.
