APHS Jumbotron Project Halts
Owner of Infinity Scoreboard Group Billy Robbins confirmed the Aransas Pass High School jumbotron project will not happen for the 2016 football season. Robbins shared not enough sponsors came forward to get the project going this time around. Robbins went on to say he will kick off the sponsor search again in January 2017 in hopes to have the project finished by the 2017 football season. The total cost of the project is around $160,000, and the LED jumbotron would feature full customization, display live game action, instant replay, graphics, sponsorships and digital scoreboard. Robbins and Head Coach Ryan Knostman were seeking $100,000 in sponsorships before beginning the project. The sponsorship panel spots the project was looking for included a 10-year spot with the smaller spot being $10,000 and the larger one being $25,000.
