Rhea Stadium - The Historic and Iconic home of the Panthers
 
 
Built as a WPA Project and home to the Panthers since 1939, Rhea Stadium is one of the most iconic football stadiums in KY. From the Art Deco style of the masonry to the raised corner of the end zone, Rhea Stadium has been home to three state champions as well as the 1950 Russellville Panther team that finished 10-0 and ranked 2nd in KY overall, and who many claim was the greatest small school football team ever in KY.
