LOGAN, Utah – Utah State University Vice President and Director of Athletics John Hartwell announced Thursday a $1 million gift from Tom and Patty Willis for a new state-of-the-art full-length indoor practice facility.
“We are grateful for the generous gift from the Willis family on this facility that will be a positive game-changer for our student-athletes across all sports,” said Hartwell. “Tom and Patty’s buy-in to our vision will serve as a catalyst for our development team as we raise the funds to build the practice facility.”
The 110,000-square-foot $30 million facility, which will be located on campus next to the Stan Laub Indoor Training Center, will have a full-size football field and can also accommodate a full-size soccer field. The project will also house USU’s new golf training facility, along with locker rooms and office space for the soccer program.
The new indoor practice facility will free up the Stan Laub Indoor Training Center (the current indoor facility) for more access for all sports.
