Comments: This grand old stadium has seen and been apart of a lot of historic games in South Texas football lore. Home of The Pride of South Texas, The Alice Coyotes. The grounds crew at Alice takes pride in having one of the best playing surfaces in South Texas, as voted on by many area coaches, and turf builders around the State of Texas. Alice Memorial Stadium was nicknamed, The Skydome back in 1980 by then Coach Bob Boyd. Alice was going to play Stafford Dulles in the bi-district round of the playoffs. Dulles wanted The Astrodome, we wanted Alice, well we won the flip. Coach Boyd called the coaches and kids back at Alice and said, We're playing in the dome, everyone started jumping around because they thought he meant the Astrodome, he then said, 'The Skydome they are coming to Alice. Alice won that game 14-10.
