Athens (The Plains, Ohio) didn't waste any time in honoring its greatest athlete. It named the school's football stadium after Joe Burrow before he even took a professional snap from center.

According to Sports Illustrated, the Athens School District decided to rename the stadium after Burrow's heartfelt Heisman Trophy acceptance speech in which he named the school district.

Burrow's star continued to rise following the renaming as he led LSU to the national championship in January and was selected No. 1 in the NFL Draft by the Cincinnati Bengals in April.

Joe Burrow Stadium is one of 10 stadiums and football fields featured in our Google Earth series, which takes a new view of gridirons named after NFL players. See the full list below.

Joe Burrow Stadium: The stadium is where Burrow threw for 11,416 yards in a career in which he earned all-state honors.
Tony Romo Field: The latest field to be renamed at Burlington (Wis.), Tony Romo Field is located at Don Dalton Stadium. Dalton was Romo's coach at Burlington during the 1996 and 1997 seasons.
Joe Montana Stadium: Before leading the San Francisco 49ers to four Super Bowl championships, Montana was an all-state quarterback at Ringgold (Monongahela, Pa.).
John Elway Stadium: Elway was an All-American during his final two seasons at Granada Hills Charter (Granada Hills, Calif.) after transferring from Washington. The stadium seats 4,000 people and is located in the San Fernando Valley.
Emmitt Smith Field: The NFL's all-time leading rusher got his start at Escambia (Pensacola, Fla.), where he rushed for 8,804 yards and was named All-American.
Ronnie Lott Stadium: A native of New Mexico, Lott moved to Rialto, Calif., at a young age and attended Eisenhower. The school renamed the stadium in honor of the Hall of Famer safety in 2009.
Walter Payton Field: While Walter Payton College Prep High School can be found in Chicago, where he played his entire NFL career, Walter Payton Field is found at his high school alma mater in Columbia (Miss.).
Tony Dorsett Stadium: The all-time leading rusher in NCAA history by the time he finished his college career at Pitt, Dorsett began his career at Hopewell (Aliquippa, Pa.), where he was one of the top recruits in the country in 1973.
Brian Piccolo Memorial Stadium: While many NFL players have come from St. Thomas Aquinas (Fort Lauderdale, Fla.), the stadium is named after a former Raider who was the subject of Emmy-winning movie "Brian's Song." Piccolo played for the Chicago Bears and died from cancer in 1970. Actor James Caan played the role of Piccolo in the 1971 TV movie.
Brady Family Stadium: The stadium at Serra (San Mateo, Calif.) is named not just for NFL quarterback Tom Brady, but for his family, as Brady requested. The stadium was renamed for the Brady family in 2012.

2020-21 HIGHSCORE Cup winter state-by-state leaders - HIGHSCORE
2020-21 MaxPreps Cup winter state-by-state leaders
Carmel (Ind.), North Allegheny (Wexford, Pa.) and Marist (Atlanta) head the list of MaxPreps Cup leaders by state, but due to COVID, it is an incomplete list this year.

A total of 12 states, along with the District of Columbia, had no high school sports at all this year or had a limited version of regular season play, abbreviated postseason play and no state finals during the fall and winter seasons. Those states include California, Connecticut, District of Columbia, Hawaii, Illinois, Maine, Massachusetts, Maryland, Nevada, New Mexico, New York, Oregon and Washington. Some of those states have begun competition in the spring and may hold state competition by the end of the school year.

MaxPrep lists the top five teams from each of the other 38 states that held state championships, according to the MaxPreps Cup formula.

The MaxPreps Cup is an effort to rank the top high school athletic programs in the country. Points are awarded for state championships, state runner-up finishes and national rankings. Points are awarded based on popularity of sport, based on participation numbers, the size of the state, the size of schools in a playoff division and the number of teams participating in that playoff division.

These campuses are big and small and across the corners of the U.S.

The view from Google Earth allows a different perspective - a bird's eye look. It allows you to search some of the most extreme locations in the world.

MaxPreps has already taken a look at 10 unique high schools in the U.S., as well as schools of players in the Michael Jordan documentary "The Last Dance," and 10 high school football stadiums named after NFL players.

The latest installment in the series dives into some of the extreme schools in the United States.

School at lowest elevation
West Shores Academy (Salton City, Calif.): In the 1960s, Salton City was a tourist attraction capable of housing 40,000 residents on 12,000 lots, according to Wikipedia. Most of those lots are now empty and the town has a population of about 4,000. It is located 125 feet below sea level.
School at highest elevation
Lake County (Leadville, Colo.): Believed to be the school at the highest elevation in the United States at 9,983 feet above sea level.
Westernmost school that plays football
Gold Beach (Ore.): With its football field bordering the beach and the Pacific Ocean, Gold Beach is the westernmost school in the contiguous United States that plays football.
Northernmost school in United States
Barrow (Alaska): At 300 miles north of the Arctic Circle, Barrow is the northernmost school in the United States. It gets approximately 20 hours of daylight the spring/summer months. It is located 5,642 miles from the southernmost school in the contiguous United States, Key West.
Southernmost school in contiguous United States
Key West (Fla.):
Located at the tip of the Florida Keys, Key West plays in a league with schools from Miami. Key West is actually closer to Havana, Cuba (106 miles) than it is to its league opponents (160 miles).
Southernmost school in 50 states
Ka'u (Pahala, Hawaii):
Located toward the southern end of the Big Island in Hawaii, Ka'u is about 50 miles south of Key West, the southernmost school in the contiguous United States.
School with largest enrollment
Brooklyn Tech (Brooklyn, N.Y.):
At nine stories tall, Brooklyn Tech houses the largest enrollment of any school in the nation with over 8,000 students. The athletic facilities are located several miles away with a gymnasium and football field.
Smallest School that plays Football
Banner County (Harrisburg, Neb.):
A school that plays 6-man football, Banner County is believed to be the smallest school in the nation that fields a football team. According to the Nebraska School Activities Association, Banner County has nine boys enrolled in the school.
Easternmost school
Shead Memorial (Eastport, Maine):
Located on an island in eastern Maine, Shead Memorial is just a few miles from the eastern border of the United States and Canada. Shead fields basketball, soccer and baseball teams.
Westernmost school
Unalaska (Alaska):
Located on the Aleutian Islands, Unalaska is close to the international dateline. It does not field a football team, but it does field basketball, soccer and volleyball teams. Unalaska is 5,737 miles, by land, from the easternmost school, Shead Memorial.

Sometimes to really appreciate something, you need to change your perspective.

Renowned French novelist Marcel Proust once said, "the real voyage of discovery comes not in seeking new landscapes, but in having new eyes."

MaxPreps provides "new eyes" to help discover 10 of the coolest high school campuses in the nation via Google Earth. Time to begin your real voyage of discovery.

Here is a snapshot of the 10 schools featured in the video:

Allen (Texas): The school already has a multi-million dollar football stadium, but it also has an impressive array of baseball and softball fields and an extra football field.
Bentonville (Ark.): A two-time MaxPreps Cup champion, Bentonville has a campus that stretches almost 10 city blocks.
Stevenson (Pebble Beach, Calif.): It's easy to see why Stevenson ranks as one of the top golf programs in the state. It's near the famed Pebble Beach golf course.
Westminster (Atlanta, Ga.): Winner of nearly 300 state championships, Westminster sits in a picturesque setting where the athletic fields are carved out of a heavily wooded area in Atlanta.
Parkland (Allentown, Pa.): From outer space, the Parkland campus looks like something from another world. The campus has a unique Millennium Falcon shape.
Punahou (Honolulu, Hawaii): The Buff 'N Blue have won over 500 state championships and are located just a few miles from Waikiki Beach.
Bolles (Jacksonville, Fla.): The Bulldogs have one of the top swimming programs in the nation, as evidenced by the Olympic-size pool that's just beyond the school's front doors.
Baylor (Chattanooga, Tenn.): Built along the Tennessee River, Baylor School overlooks the water with the athletic fields in among the woods lining the waterway.
Valley Christian (San Jose, Calif.): Sitting atop a ridge in South San Jose, Valley Christian stretches the length of the rise with the football field at one end and the baseball field at the other.
IMG Academy (Bradenton, Fla.): Just a short distance from the Gulf of Mexico, IMG Academy hosts 16 soccer fields, a dozen tennis courts, three football fields and nine baseball fields, not to mention a small golf course and an Olympic-size pool.
