The home field advantage is changing up for two Tulsa high schools because of violence linked to football games.
"We don't want any people there for reasons other than watching the game," said Gil Cloud, the athletic director for Tulsa Public Schools.
The Will Rogers College High School will have home games at the S.E. Williams Stadium instead of the Milton Stadium. Rogers essentially will switch with Central High School, which will have home games at the Milton Stadium instead of S.E. Williams.
"If we take that school out of that setting and move it to another setting we'll take them out of a potential problem that they had with the local clientele that normally come to that stadium," Cloud said defending the changes.
Cloud said TPS will also begin enforcing other rules to tighten up security. Students must display their ID in order to get inside of the stadium, and they can only attend a football game for the school they are enrolled in unless accompanied by an adult."There’s not been any within the stadium issues, the issues that we’ve dealt with have
been outside the stadium," Cloud said.
