Over 180 TSU supporters gathered for the second annual TSU Athletic Association recruitment breakfast at the Brentwood Holiday Inn on Saturday morning. Retired Vice President of Student Affairs Thomas Martin, TSU Alumnus and TSUAA silver level contributor Malcolm Wallace, and Gussie Fuller addressed the crowd on issues ranging from the facts of athletic budgeting, comparing TSU Athletic giving to other Universities, and the importance of young alumni becoming more involved. Athletics Director Teresa Phillips announced plans to build a multi-million dollar Field House next to Hale stadium with a capital campaign to be launched in the spring. As Athletic training and practice facilities are being erected across the country, a Field House would improve TSU's position in recruiting the most talented athletes.
