Stadium Change For Athletes


Here in the Adams 12 school district, we have two stadiums for athletics. We have the Five Star Stadium, which is on the Thornton High School campus. Therefore,  Thornton High School and Northglenn High School use this stadium. The other field we have is North Stadium, which is on the Mountain Range High School campus, which includes Mountain Range High School, Horizon High School, Legacy High School, and Prospect Ridge Academy. Now all the high schools in Adams 12 District have to play at Five Star Stadium due to safety reasons at North Stadium. 


All these athletes who played at the North Stadium now have to adapt to playing at a different stadium. Students, staff, families, and athletes all have to make a longer drive to this stadium for their games. I asked a few football players from a few positions here at Horizon some questions regarding the stadium change.

The Profile: How do you feel about being at a different stadium this year?


Varsity Quarterback Alex Birch (11): “It’s a new excitement that we were able to move stadiums. I see it as something cool, not as a downside to our game as a team.” 


Varsity Running Back Caiden Quintana (11): “I feel good just glad to get out there and play with my brothers. Whether it’s in the backyard or if it’s in an NFL stadium.”


Varsity Wide Receiver Lucas Wilt (12): “At first I was a little upset that we didn’t get to play at North Stadium this year because I’ve been playing there for the last 2 years. But honestly, I don’t mind the stadium change, the atmosphere feels pretty similar and people still show up so I don’t mind.” 


The Profile: Do you think the stadium change has affected your season? 


Varsity Quarterback Alex Birch (11): “No it doesn’t really affect my game play. We play on the road a lot so it’s something new.”


Varsity Running Back Caiden Quintana (11): “It doesn’t matter where we play, we have a job to do and we have every intention of getting it done.” 


Varsity Wide Receiver Lucas Wilt (12): “Honestly I don’t think the stadium change has affected us, a field is a field and if that’s what people use as an excuse then that’s lame.” 


The Horizon Hawks have the best mindsets when it comes to change, and that’s what these young adults will carry throughout their lives.
