|"We have one and only one ambition. To be the best. What else is there?" -from the Notre Dame football locker room door|
On August 29, 2002, the newly renovated Sirrine Stadium was dedicated. After much planning and months of construction to "restore the past," festivities honored "generations of greatness." Students and faculty particpated in a "snake walk" to the stadium from the school. At the dedication ceremony attended by numerous dignitaries and friends of the school, former United States Secretary of Education and South Carolina Governor Dick Riley spoke. The renovation project, which began with a ground-breaking ceremony on March, 25, 2002, has resulted in a new stadium entrance, enlarged pressbox, bigger restrooms, more spacious locker rooms, and enhanced stadium seating.
Sirrine Stadium has a long and rich history of tradition in the Greenville Community. Once the home of the Furman University Paladins, it also supported the Greenville Senior High School Raiders. Fall weekend nights and afternoons around Sirrine Stadium have been filled with the noise and hoopla of football for generations of Greenvillians. The efforts to preserve this center of cultural and athletic tradition have culminated in a outstanding center for future enjoyment. Come by Sirrine Stadium and take a look at the the quality preservation and improvements that have been made to this great piece ot Greenville history.
