$4.5 million football stadium pride of San Benito

But these limitations mean nothing on certain fall nights, when San Benito's humble reality melts away in the glare, hype and community celebration of high school football.

Especially now that a new $4.5 million stadium houses the beloved purple-and-gold Mighty Greyhounds, portraying them as the town's warriors on a $500,000 scoreboard, the grandest of its kind south of San Antonio.

A maze of steel I-beams and uprights, aluminum bleachers, beaming lights and a massive video screen, it's a structural status symbol that — like the Alamo — gives its town an immeasurable sense of pride.

"Everyone knows us as Mexicans without money. Now our scoreboard is one of the biggest in the Valley," said Ana Lisa Pedraza, 16, who agreed with other students interviewed here that the new facility was the best thing to happen to San Benito because "we are not known to have big things."

It can hold half the town.

"This is high school, (yet) this is like something you have in the pros or in college," marveled Bobby Morrow, a triple gold-medal sprinter in the 1956 Olympics who played football here.

The stadium was named after him, but watching from the sidelines the night it opened, he said, "It's for the people to hold their heads up high."

Fans stomp in the stands whenever the announcer says it's "time to release the dogs." The stadium rumbles like thunder.

But what's really deafening is the silence of critics. There was virtually no public opposition to the stadium's cost or accessories. Ask why, and the answer around town is, "Why not?"

Well-rounded students

To find somebody who is against it, you have to go to nearby Harlingen, a football rival.

There isn't an active parent-teacher association at San Benito High School, which is rated "acceptable" by the state. History teacher Steve Kelly said he and his colleagues embrace the stadium because they want to make sure students are well-rounded, with a chance to "shine on the football field and also achieve in the classroom, too."

The school district, which the state classifies as property-poor, capped the scoreboard with a motto: "Where a lifetime of learning begins."

"Extracurricular is an active part of their education, as much as the academics are," said superintendent of schools Antonio Limon. Moreover, he noted, extracurricular activities "are what keep a lot of kids in school."

Studies support that claim.

And in a place where the most popular sport after football is local politics, San Benito News editor Ray Quiroga said the stadium and what he calls the "Friday Night Lights syndrome" is good for the economy, good for morale and good entertainment.

"Some people might not care about football, but they are there to socialize," Quiroga said. "It also carries a lot of hope."

Last Friday night, there wasn't evidence of hope for much of anything except the upcoming playoffs, as the Greyhounds, 5-3, romped on winless Brownsville Hanna 58 to 0.

The home team scored on what seemed to be every possession. The crowd threw confetti in the air with each touchdown.

Sitting in the top row, near a boy who watched the game through binoculars, Eddie Varela, 49, an industrial laborer, was content.

"It was time we had something like this," he said from one of the highest views in town.

"I know our taxes are going up, but it's good for San Benito," he said. "I get to see a lot of my friends, people I went to school with and their families."

A few sections over sat Luis Ramirez Jr., 21, a former varsity player who had his face painted purple and yellow; his hair was also purple. At playoff games he intends to paint his arms, shave his long hair into a Mohawk and, of course, color it purple.

"I bled. I dislocated my shoulder. I fractured my knee," Ramirez, a dish-network technician, recalled of his football days. "Yet I wouldn't trade any of it away for anything. This just brings me back to the memories. If I could go back I would. There is nothing like playing in front of the people who see you grow up."

Flailing his arms wildly in the sea of purple, he competed in the night's "WhataFan" contest touted on the big screen and won free food at Whataburger.

Like winning 'Rose Bowl'

There were more-reserved fans, such as Odilia Gallegos, 66, who has been coming to games since she was little.

"Here, it's real nice and comfortable," she said of the new digs. "You can really enjoy it."

Though the easy victory didn't produce the typical effect of a close game, special teams player Elias Martinez, 17, said that even without the new stadium, "winning a game is like wining the Rose Bowl."

"Everyone goes to it," he said. "It's hard to explain. It's just how many people come out and support us."

Greyhound coach Mario Peña is also the athletic director for the one-high-school district, earning $92,810 a year — more than the city manager's base pay and in the top tier of salaries in Texas high school sports.

He's had more lucrative offers, he said, but likes it here. Practicing mornings and after school, meeting with the team on weekends, his well-instilled motto is: "Winning is not done by chance but by design."

The Greyhounds lost close games to powerhouse Los Fresnos and to Weslaco, other football-crazed towns at the top of the 32-5A district.

As a young boy approached him for an autograph after Friday's win, Peña explained how football gives people something to be proud of in a town that doesn't even have a movie theater.

He has led several Valley football teams but said he is amazed by San Benito fans.

"Every time we play at home, we feel our side of the bleachers," Peña said.
