Shadyside High School Facility Enhancement Announcement

New Scoreboard and JumboTron Project

SHADYSIDE, OHIO — Ohio Valley Athletic Conference powerhouse, Shadyside High School announced the decision to add a state-of-the-art video board and scoreboard to their football stadium, Fleming Field.  Shadyside officials hope to have the board ready for the 2015 fall season opener in August should the required sponsorship funds be secured through advertisers and sponsor commitments.

The new JumboTron will be one of the largest of its kind amongst Ohio Valley area high schools.  The upgrade will provide Shadyside’s student-athletes with one of the finest outdoor facilities in the region.  “The addition of a JumboTron to the facility will enhance the student-athlete experience.  It also truly opens our school to even greater fan engagement and access to the action on the field,” offered John Triveri, the Tigers’ Athletic Director.  “This project will not be the financial responsibility of the school district, as no district money will be spent.  The opportunity to add this board rests solely on commitments of advertisers and sponsors, so we encourage those interested to contact us to express any interest they may have in being a part of this project.”

The innovative video board will provide high quality video, sound and entertainment content at games and events held at the venue, including Shadyside High School varsity and junior varsity football, girls and boys track & field and other sporting events hosted at the Stadium.

Educational opportunities extend to the student body, as select students will assist in running the video board on game days and consideration will be given as to how students can enhance their skill set by participating in gathering content for the board.

Shadyside High School is working with Wheeling based Scholastic Sports Marketing’s to assist with all aspects of the project including raising the sponsorship revenue necessary to fund the project.  Local businesses involved will have the opportunity to receive recognition on the video board in return.
