Best stadiums to watch high school football? Duchon is on ESPN’s list

This article is from a while back, but in no way does that diminish how cool it is to see Bill Duchon Field highlighted in an article by ESPN.  In it, ESPN ranks Duchon at #7 for the best high school football stadiums in the country, and has this to say:

The field is surrounded by woods on three sides, and with the man-made Lake Ellyn Park behind the visitors’ stands, the crowd atmosphere on Saturday afternoons (there are no lights) appears right out of the movies. In fact, scenes from the movie “Lucas” were filmed at the site. The high school, built in 1923, looks like a castle, complete with turrets, and sits atop a hill behind the home bleachers. After a Hilltopper victory, the home-team players storm up the hill to ring a victory bell to announce to the town they’ve won.

That’s just awesome.
