    Jul 25 marked the halfway point for a new Dallas Cowboys training complex under construction in Frisco.

    The ascension of new beams signified the half-way point for the completion of the a new football training facility dubbed, "The Star."

    "We have over 575 folks out here working at the site and working seven days a week, and we are on schedule," said Frisco Mayore Maher Maso. "It will open on time."

    On Saturday, city leaders and members of the Cowboys organization showed off the progress at the site just off the Dallas North Tollway in Frisco.

    "It's exciting to see the excitement of the community and we can't wait," said Charlotte Jones Anderson, Cowboys chief branding officer. "It's going to be a fabulous facility."

    The stadium won't just be reserved for the Cowboys; athletic programs within Frisco ISD will also play at the facility.

    "This facility is going to be a real work horse for our high schools," said Dr. Jeremy Lyon, Frisco ISD superintendent.

    "It really gives me goosebumps to think about what's going to happen when these kids rub shoulders with the Dallas Cowboys when they're walking off the field, and Tony Romo's walking on," said Stephen Jones, Cowboys chief operating officer.

    The Star will seat about 12,000 people, but the stadium and office building will take up about a third of the space on the 90-acre development.

    Construction is expected to be complete in the fall of 2016, a timeline that has many counting down.
