Schools offer gee-whiz gyms
U.S. News & World Report
There are eight basketball courts, a third-mile corkscrew track suspended high above the ground floor, a 20-foot climbing wall rising out of an outdoor pool, a PGA golf simulator and a hot tub that seats 50 people. Atop the "fitness tower," five stories of cardio equipment and exercise rooms, sits a yoga studio whose enormous windows open up to the sky like garage doors. A five-star spa? A billionaire's vacation home? Actually, this is the new student recreation center at Auburn University in Alabama, $72 million worth of exercise opportunities.

PermianBasin360.com
Lee High School in Midland, Texas, has brand new turf for its football field, but it's what's underneath that will have a huge impact on the players.

College football: It's harder to fill stadiums
The Columbus Dispatch
Much more than football will be on display in Ohio Stadium when the University of Cincinnati tries to become the first in-state school since 1921 to defeat Ohio State. A cranking fog machine will add to the theatrical scene as OSU players take the field before more than 105,000 fans, all sitting under the stadium's new permanent lights. Those fans will be able to see their tweets and Instagram photos displayed on the stadium's ribbon scoreboards, and if their phones are low on power, they can go to four new charging stations.

California coach installs digital 'classroom' on sidelines
Visalia Times-Delta
Frustrated with the awkwardness of having the team's offensive or defensive units huddled around a single iPad on the sidelines, Mt. Whitney, California coach Marty Martin tried to figure out a way where the still photos could be reviewed on a much-larger screen. Martin turned to a technological whiz on the junior varsity coaching staff, and the Pioneers made a major improvement prior to the 2014 campaign. They hooked up a 55-inch flat-screen TV to the iPad used on the sidelines.

Former football players get another chance to play
The Kansas City Star
Allen Offenbacker says he wanted the chance to put on an Odessa High School football uniform one more time. He wanted to step onto the field with his teammates by his side and the bright lights shining down on him. But more than anything, he just wanted an excuse to hit somebody. Offenbacker was one of more than 60 players who took part in an inaugural Odessa vs. Oak Grove alumni football game. Odessa won 18-7 on its home field. But it wasn’t really about the score.
