Inside Look at Floyd Casey Stadium


(December 4, 2013) (December 4, 2013) Millions of eyes have watched, thousands of feet have stormed the field, but few have ever seen Floyd Casey Stadium from the top of the press box.

The highest point in the stadium offers an astonishing view of Baylor's home field and downtown Waco.

Just below, on the 5th floor of the press box, Baylor legends like Frank Fallon and John Morris have broadcasted some of the biggest moments in Baylor history.

Next door is the heartbeat for the stadium's scoreboard where customized messages and videos are put together and displayed for everyone to see.

Any newspaper story you've read over the past six decades was likely written here, in the Dave Campbell media center, named after longtime Waco Tribune sports editor, Dave Campbell.

Take the elevator down and you'll find the President's suite, with seating for President Starr and his closest friends.

Hundreds of Baylor players, guys like RG3 and Mike Singletary, have walked through that tunnel time after time.

Baylor's locker room was renovated in 2001, making it the largest in the Big 12 at the time.

And this is where thousands of Baylor Bears have prepared, celebrated and cried, the players who have shared these lockers marked with a plaque.

In the middle of the locker room is sacred ground, the Baylor logo. Anyone who walks on it is forced to do pushups as penance.

Back in the hallway leading to the field are pictures of the greatest coaches and players to ever play in this stadium.

But only once more will they take this road home.
