Boak & Sons Finishes Work on YSU Stadium in Time for Football Season

Friday, Sep 06, 2019

Boak & Sons completed sheet metal work on the Youngstown State University’s Stambaugh Stadium this August, just in time for football season. A commercial exterior contractor, Boak & Sons has worked on many sports stadiums over the years. Stambaugh Stadium was one of their favorites due to the “hometown” location and the impact the venue has on their community. Boak & Sons is headquartered a short 15-minute drive from the YSU campus.

“Youngstown State University is the nucleus and future of our community,” says Sam Boak, President of Boak & Sons. “YSU offers our local students educational opportunities and experiences that rival big city universities. They are transforming downtown and growing our community into a place that people want to be.”

Sam Boak is not only invested professionally in the university, he has personal ties as well. Boak is involved in athletic sponsorships and student scholarships which he sponsors annually. “I want to help support students and athletes in their academic and professional careers. Through YSU’s various scholarship programs, I’m able to give back continually to my community and the future of it,” says Sam Boak.

The Don Constantini Multimedia Center is the newest addition to the east side of the football stadium; it is in the visitor’s section. This new space will be used for YSU’s Sports Broadcasting program. It will hold a classroom and football radio booths. For the exterior construction project, Boak & Sons installed sheet metal flush panels, horizontal box ribbed panels, soffit paneling, and a flat roof on the structure.

The project wrapped up in August and is ready to go for the Penguin’s first home game of the football season. The Youngstown State University football team will play Howard University at 2 p.m. this Saturday, September 7, 2019.
