Northside ISD Multi-Campus Upgrades

Serving approximately 105,000 students, Northside Independent School District in San Antonio is one of the largest in the state of Texas. In 2020 the district selected Paragon Sports Constructors to convert the natural grass practice fields at Brandeis, Clark, and O’Connor High Schools to synthetic turf and renovate the surrounding running tracks at each campus.  Upon completion of those projects, PSC was selected in 2021 to replace the turf at Dub Farris Stadium.  Executive Director of Athletics, Stan Laing, shares his insights and experience on the projects. 


“The driving force behind each of our projects when it comes to facilities is our desire to create the most conducive and safe learning environment for our student athletes to compete on and our coaches to coach on.  With just over 15,000 participating in athletics, it is imperative to work with a team like PSC to ensure we can adequately serve as many programs as possible.  The fields just completed by PSC will do just that for football, soccer, baseball, softball, and track in addition to our band, spirit, JROTC, and PE programs as well as our community.”

“We knew going into these projects that PSC had a strong reputation for quality and we were not disappointed; the projects were handled with excellent communication from their team and we were treated with respect and felt like a priority throughout the process.”

“Our updated facilities have been a tremendous addition to each of our campuses.  Those that know, know that quality facilities only enhance the overall school climate in a very positive way, not only for our faculty and students, but our school’s communities as well.  Paragon Sports Constructors has provided four great facilities to practice and compete on, we are thankful for your work and dedication to quality.”

“To be honest, from a personal perspective, I have been doing this for a very long time, not always will you connect on both a personal and business level.  I must say, it begins with William Chaffe and the team of professionals he has put together.  There has always been a sense of service and willingness to make sure we get exactly what we want and need for our coaches and student athletes.  It is also imperative to have the best possible product and contractor installing that product, I feel confident PSC offers that as well.”
