Project: Omaha South High School Collin Stadium

Omaha, Nebraska

Omaha South High School had not hosted a varsity football game since 1946. Collin Field, known as “The Hole”, sat in a natural bowl at 23rd and “L” Streets and was used as South High’s track and practice football field. Lamp Rynearson provided engineering design services for a new multi-sport playing field and track stadium to replace the existing facility. The project goal was to provide a full-sized soccer field meeting the requirements of the annual Nebraska State High School Soccer Tournament that could also be used as a varsity football field. The completed facility has had a major impact on the neighborhood around Omaha South High School, a neighborhood rich in Hispanic culture, while at the same time providing meaningful social, economic and sustainable design benefits.
