You will notice in the photo, taken on Thursday, the stadium sign “Pat Strother Memorial Stadium” is missing from atop the press box. Also some of the fencing surrounding the stadium has been taken down. Very soon the contractor will move in and demolish the stadium that has served Red River/Coushatta High since the 1950s. A new stadium will be constructed in time for football season next fall.
