Goal Post Power Towers

Actually very cool look when you see them. They really bring attention that you're at the NFL HOF area. Canton McKinley High school is there also. Tom Benson football stadium has been totally overhauled. Try to schedule a trip when Massillon vs McKinley football game is played. Great HS rivalry.
