No Video Scoreboard Yet At Rose Stadium

Saying they needed more time to think about it, the Tyler Independent School Board of Trustees did not give the green light tonight for a new video scoreboard at Trinity Mother Frances Rose Stadium. 

The proposal would have allowed Daktronics Sports Marketing, in partnership with TITUS Sports Marketing, to donate video scoreboards and related equipment worth $951, 500 to TISD in exchange for leasing of advertising and sponsorship on the equipment for ten years.  The package included a scoreboard with a 13'X18' video board, auxilliary scoreboard, concessions and wayfinding signage, a new stadium sound system, three cameras and a control center for the video replay board at Trinity Mother Frances Rose Stadium.  The package also included a scoreboard, concession and wayfinding signage at Mike Carter Field, and Marquees outside the TISD Administrative Office, Robert E. Lee high school, and John Tyler high school.

With existing scoreboards at TMF Rose Stadium and Mike Carter Field quickly deteriorating, the board of trustees was intrigued by the proposal.  But, several members of the board had  concerns over the placement of certain advertising signs, as well as how the marquees would be used.  As a result, the board voted to table the issue in order to obtain more information.  Robert Dedmon, Regional Sales Director for Daktronics Sports Marketing said time is running out if the scoreboards are to be installed by the start of the football season.  He said a decision would have to be made within the next two weeks.  The board plans to hold a meeting next week, then call a special session.

    The John Tyler Lions always seem to look sharp in their uniforms. But thanks to East Texas lawyer Keith Miller, the Lions will look better and play safer. Helmets that advertise lowering the impact of hits, and possibly reduce the amount of concussions, come with a hefty price-tag. Miller's donation of 7,500 dollars, will go to help the lions cover that cost. "Keith Miller's been a big sponsor of John Tyler High School football program for years now.  I know it's...More >>
