Fouts Field

I noticed in the winter issue that you were collecting memories of Fouts Field.  The field was named after my grandfather, Theron Judson Fouts, and my dad was Theron Judson Fouts Jr. (Tom). He died Aug. 30.

Dad loved North Texas and worked to improve and help achieve development of the campus and surrounding areas. As Fouts Field ends its reign as UNT’s field, with Dad’s death ends the name of Fouts in a line of great men.

After the funeral of my mother, we were driving past the new construction of the stadium and Dad stopped and pointed to it with pride. We will remember Fouts Field with fondness, but celebrate with the students of today and tomorrow for the future of UNT.
