After completing a major renovation to the Dan and Ada Rice Athletic Center in 2011, ICI was contracted to create a new state-of-the-art football center on the northwest side of the existing athletic facility. Named after the Borsellino Family, the new football center inhabits the former site of the unused racquetball courts as well as a 1,675 SF addition on the west side of the athletic center.

The center features flat panel televisions, a 8’ marker board wall for game preparation, 121 professional wood lockers, shower facilities, a team meeting area and players’ lounge. The lighting adds a dynamic element to the space; LED lights shift the space from standard lighting to the school’s powerful red hue.

The lockers accommodate today’s football equipment and include storage for helmets, shoulder pads and have lockable space for personal items, including charging stations for phone and other electronic devices.

The vacant 2nd floor weight room, which has not been in use, was also renovated and houses golf simulators.
