New Scoreboards For SHSU
Get ready to see numbers soar with the new scoreboards coming to Bowers Stadium, Johnson Coliseum, and the Bearkat Softball Complex, reports the Houstonian:
The new additions are products of a partnership between Wismer Distributing Company’s Jim and Tonya Ferris, Ann Wismer and Michael Landolt in Baytown, Kurt Stevenson of Steven Beer Distributing Company in Trinity, Anheuser-Busch and the SHSU Department of Athletics.
Bowers Stadium’s new scoreboard will be the biggest scoreboard in the Football Championship Subdivision. It will stand at 32 feet, 4 inches by 79 feet, 6 inches. The board will include full LED lighting, 15 mm, high-definition video display for live video, custom animation, color graphics along with statistics, time and results.
As for Johnson Coliseum, it will replace its current scoreboard with a new 17 feet, 9.3 inches tall by 31 feet, 1.6 inches wide scoreboard. The scoreboard will include a 10 mm video display for live video for its basketball and volleyball games. The coliseum is already set to see $9.5 million in renovations after a Texas State University Board of Regents decision in February.
The scoreboard for softball will stand at 23 feet, 11.2 inches tall by 27 feet wide with a live video screen.
The scoreboards are set to be finished by the fall 2015 semester.
