Rock Island High Public School Stadium is clearly one of the best, if not THE best high school football facility in the nation.
The bowl-shaped stadium has tree heated and fully updated locker rooms, a coach’s office and locker room, an officials’ locker room, three concession areas, a souvenir shop, a fully equipped trainer’s office, and equipment storage areas are all housed beneath the home side seating area.
In 2020, a new stadium surface and track was put in.
With seating for over 15,000 spectators plus a special section for spectators with disabilities, spacious press boxes on both sides of the field, and rented sky boxes available for dedicated supporters, Rocky Stadium is a great blend of tradition with state of the art technology.
When the "ROCKS" score be prepared! In addition to thousands of cheering spectators, scores are celebrated with blast from an authentic "Rock Island Lines" train horn, and a salute from a Vietnam War era navy signal cannon. Oh, and just for good measure the 150 member "Pride of Rock Island" marching band plays "Fight on Rock Island" and two huge "RI" field flags are proudly run in front of the home crowd.
The Stadium serves as home for Rocky Football, Boys’ Soccer, Girls’ Soccer, Boys’ Track, and Girls’ Track. It is also used for Washington and Edison Jr. High track meets and the annual jr. high school "City Championship" football game.
