The Names Behind the Athletics Facilities

"The Names Behind the Athletics Facilities: A Unique Perspective on Baylor Sports History" explores the lives of the individuals and families whose names grace the venues today and in the past. Honorees include alumni, athletes, coaches and fans who adopted the Baylor Athletics mission in pursuing excellence in sports while "representing Baylor with character and integrity." We come to these facilities on game days in our green and gold, ready to scream, jump, and Sic’em to support our teams. We believe in our athletes, we believe in our coaches, and we believe in Baylor. The exhibit honors those who have also believed and dedicated themselves to developing the athletic facilities. We hope these memories will remind the Baylor family of the progress the athletics program has made and excite us for success stories to come. The exhibit can be viewed in the Goodpasture Concourse of the Moody Memorial Library near Starbucks.
