Fudge Football Operations Center
November 2021 also marked the announcement of a $15 million lead gift from Jeremy, B.A. ’97, and Kristy Fudge of Parker, Texas, to the Give Light Capital Fund. In recognition and appreciation of the family’s legacy of support for Baylor and Baylor Athletics, the University named the Fudge Football Operations Center in their honor.
“In business and in our personal lives, our family has always lived by the motto ‘Pursue the Exceptional,’ and we are proud to support Baylor University in their pursuit of excellence,” Jeremy Fudge said. “As Christians, we are called to pursue excellence in everything we do, as an act of worship and obedience. At Baylor, our excellence can be a testimony to our Christian faith on a national stage, and we are excited to join the good work they are doing through our gift to support these programs, people and priorities as they continue Preparing Champions for Life.”
The Fudge Football Operations Center will connect to the Allison Indoor Practice Facility, expanding the 80-yard indoor turf field to 100 yards and creating more than 100,000 square feet of new space for the Baylor Football program. The Fudge Center will include offices for coaches, equipment staff and medical trainers, a locker room for student-athletes, a medical training room, equipment distribution room, a strength and conditioning weight room, and a large team meeting room.
