CONWAY, S.C. — Penn State’s first opponent of the 2008 football season is the Coastal Carolina Chanticleers. It just so happened that our drive down to see Aunt Janet took us right past Brooks Stadium, home of CCU football. After our visit this past weekend, we stopped by the campus to take photos.
The campus itself is spread out with pleasant looking brick buildings. The athletic complex on the edge of campus is suitable for a school of its size. There was a baseball tournament going on with Pitt beating Virginia Tech, 9-3 in the fourth inning before dozens of spectators.
Brooks Stadium is a small, but attractive football stadium. According CCU Athletics, it seats over 6,000. It also doesn’t have locked gates, so I walked around and even onto the field. I was a bit surprised, but pleased to see that CCU plays on grass and not a rug. Good for them, it almost makes up for the teal and black colors.
