Quite possibly the biggest run through in high school football

Allen High School likes to do things big. I'll never forget walking into a high school double-header at SMU's Ford Stadium when my group unwittingly stumbled into the Allen band section and hearing the band's director call for Bus 22 to head to the loading docks. Twenty-two busses for one high school band, and there was still a large chunk of Marching Eagles (as I assume they are called) waiting their turn in the stands.

As the high school in suburban north Dallas prepares to move back into the most opulent high school stadium in America after engineering flaws pushed the Eagles elsewhere for the 2014 season, the three-time defending state champions are testing out what has to be the largest run through in high school football.

The Dallas Morning News says the inflatable stands 30 feet tall and 40 feet wide.

Who among us has seen a bigger one - and can offer photo evidence?
