Daily Record sports editor Randy Stevens went up in a plane last Thursday to take some aerial shots of Bobcat Stadium for our upcoming Fall Sports Preview. Here is one of those pictures:
As you can see, construction crews are nearly done putting the finishing touches on Bobcat Stadium for the upcoming season. Texas State opens its newly-renovated stadium Sept. 8 when it hosts Texas Tech.
Well, Texas State sports fans, it looking like the bowling in of Bobcat Stadium is nearly complete.
This morning, Anita Miller of the San Marcos Daily Record went up in a helicopter to shoot pictures of the submarine theater removal at Spring Lake. While up in the sky, she hovered by Bobcat Stadium and decided to take a few pictures.

It shouldn’t be long now until it is completely bowled in. Texas State will open the renovated stadium Sept. 8 against Texas Tech.
First of all, Texas State sports fans, how about an updated picture of the construction at Bobcat Stadium.
Take a look at the newest lower-level section at Bobcat Stadium (Tyler Mayforth).
While construction crews were hard at work building the North Side Complex, the Bobcats took to the practice fields for their 10th spring practice. In total, Texas State is allowed to have 15 practice sessions, two of which need to be without pads.
Two of the Bobcats’ final five practices will be scrimmages, beginning with tonight’s (Friday) inside Bobcat Stadium. Texas State will then host the Maroon and Gold Spring Game next Saturday.
When the Bobcats scrimmage tonight, they’ll feature a full kicking game (kick/punt returns, field goals, punts). How many plays Texas State runs will base on how healthy the team stays as well as how the flow of the game progresses.
Don’t look now, Texas State sports fans, but construction crews are beginning to fill in the seating sections at Bobcat Stadium. This afternoon, crews place the first section of pre-fabricated seats for the North Side Complex.
It won't be too long before all of this is completed (SMDR Photo by Tyler Mayforth)
