BLUEFIELD, WV (WVNS) — It may just seem like a home stadium to many in Mercer county, but Mitchell stadium is proving to be more than that. The stadium recently won the first round of voting online to be named America’s Best High School Football Stadium.

The contest is being conducted by USA Today. Now, high schools from all over the nation are vying for the title. Mitchell Stadium is up against the only domed high school football arena in the nation, Round Valley Ensphere in Arizona.

Charles Ridlehuber, the Director of Parks and Recreation in Bluefield, said this contest is exciting for the community.

“Mitchell Stadium is top 8 right now, so we made the cut. I think it just showcases what we have in an area. Think about it, we’re in Bluefield, WV and we have one of the nicest stadiums in the country, so just to make the cut is exciting for us,” Ridlehuber said.

The second round of voting ends Sunday.
