Inside the Texas Longhorns' amazing $7 million locker room

The University of Texas recently spent $US10 million renovating their athletic center and $US7 million of that went to the football locker room alone. That renovation included new custom-designed lockers that cost about $US8,700 each. Following is the text of the video.

37-inch TVs sit above each athlete’s locker. These TVs just display their photos and names. The lockers are made of stainless steel instead of wood. The steel helps make it smell less bad in the locker room.

There are also vents everywhere to help with the smell. Gear sits on a slide-out tray. Helmets sit on cooling fans to help keep them dry. Each player gets a pin-pad safe. Inside the safe are outlets with USB ports. Each locker costs $US8,700 and literally glow. A giant video board shows games.

This locker room is unlike any other school’s. You can bet the Texas Longhorns love their new digs.
