USF Athletics Building To Be Named In Lee Roy Selmon's Honor

At Lee Roy Selmon's memorial service this morning, USF President Judy Genshaft announced that the USF Athletics Building will be renamed The Lee Roy Selmon Athletic Center at the University of South Florida in Mr. Selmon's honor.

We talked about possible things USF could do to honor Mr. Selmon in our Voodoo Fivecast earlier this week, and naming the Athletics Building seemed like the best way to honor Lee Roy. It was great to hear that the USF Board of Trustees unanimously approve this measure, and honestly its the least that USF could do for Mr. Selmon's years of service to the university.

USF also announced earlier this week a number of tributes to Mr. Selmon, which include keeping the #63 decal on the football team's helmets for the rest of the season and introducing a LRS patch on every USF uniform this season. USF will also have a video tribute and a moment of silence about 15 minutes before kickoff of this week's game against Ball State. You can find the entire list at SB Nation Tampa Bay.
