Thomasville-  Thomas County Central High School is going high tech at its football stadium.  Central's new $130,000 scoreboard went up Thursday and will debut at Friday's game.

The scoreboard built by Daktronics is just like the scoreboards you see at major stadiums on a smaller level. Most of the graphics and videos fans will see were put together by Central's Broadcast Production class. 

"There are several features with footage from old games on there, several like our yellow jacket logos that will be made through a program that students have made and just about everything running through there is produced by us, that we put together," said Danielle Stewart, Thomas County High Junior. 

Four local businesses each donated 30-thousand dollars to pay for the scoreboard. Only nine other high schools in Georgia have scoreboards like the one installed at the Jacket's Nest.
