Parker Field-McCool Stadium Turf Fund



In the summer of 2014, Delta State University football fans were excited to see the program begin refurbishing Parker Field-McCool Stadium with the installation of artificial turf. After just three seasons on the new surface, issues with the substructure of the install have made the field unplayable and forced our administration into replacing the entire field.


"The safety of our student-athletes, coaches and fans are always at the forefront of every decision we make here at Delta State," director of athletics Ronnie Mayers said. "Our goal right now is to aggressively address the field and work on a long-term solution that meets the needs of our program."  


      Your donation to the Parker Field-McCool Stadium Turf Fund will insure that our student-athletes, marching band, spirit squads, coaches and staff compete and train on the highest quality, industry-tested artificial turf available today.

      Our facility is not only used for DSU Athletic events! Parker Field-McCool Stadium hosts concerts, gatherings, high school sporting events, and civic organizations while serving as a center-piece for our campus and community.

      We need your support! At a time when state budgets are limited, your financial support is needed more than ever before. Your contributions to the Statesmen and Lady Statesmen have never wavered and we thank you for your continued service to the #DSUFamily. To donate to this cause CLICK HERE.
