Brazosport Independent School District lights up the new year with a Nevco LED Video Display
New scoring solution at Hopper Field reinvigorates game-day for Brazosport and Brazoswood
EDWARDSVILLE, IL, October 6, 2022 – Hopper Field in Freeport, TX has served students in the Brazosport Independent School District for nearly 75 years. Now a brand new video, scoring and audio solution is ready to do its part as well for students at Brazosport and Brazoswood High Schools.
Originally opening in 1949 and named after longtime coach and athletic director Herbert Eugene Hopper who served the district for 44 years, the stadium that now seats over 10,000 features a Nevco full-color 10mm LED Display spanning 16.19’H and 31.5’W. The new display has already highlighted wins by both Brazoswood and Brazosport on the football field.
More than 460,000 stunning pixels will grab the attention of all inside the stadium on game-day as it not only captures the exciting action on the field but permits Brazosport ISD to utilize the video display to highlight school sponsors and supporters, in addition to the illuminated signage flanking the sides, for additional revenue. Engaging graphics and prompts from Nevco Creative Services will get fans on their feet, inviting them to be part of the action, too. Hopper Field also serves as the site of commencement ceremonies for the school district, giving the new display a key role in creating lasting memories for seniors at both high schools.
“It has been a privilege to work with the people at Brazosport ISD and deliver a solution the district and both high schools could be proud of,” said Troy Burns, a Regional Video Display Consultant for Nevco. “This facility has so much history and working with great school districts across Texas like Brazosport ISD and seeing their new displays come to life is what it is all about. We look forward to continuing this great partnership with Brazosport ISD for years to come.”
All the eye-catching features can be seen on top of a custom strip intelligent caption™ scoreboard which allows the district to easily change the captions to match the sport being played on Hopper Field. Electronic team names allow the district to customize the names of every team that plays at the facility, creating a personalized element for every visiting team. Topping off the display is a custom Nevco audio package displaying “BRAZOSPORT ISD” flanked by illuminated sponsorship signage and illuminated logos of the Brazosport Exporters and Brazoswood Buccaneers. The upgrades were completed with a set of FT-24-T14 Field Timers.
