Lavell Edwards Stadium
LaVell Edwards Stadium is a stadium on the campus of Brigham Young University in Provo, Utah. It is primarily used for American football, and is the home field of the BYU Cougars.
LaVell Edwards was born on October 11, 1930 in Orem, Utah. He played football for Utah State University. He was Brigham Young University's head football coach from 1972 to 2000.
His teams were known for their spread offenses. His quarterbacks have thrown over 11,000 passes for more than 100,000 yards and 635 touchdowns. He's coached prominent quarterbacks such as Gary Sheide, Gifford Nielsen, Marc Wilson, Jim McMahon, Steve Young, Robbie Bosco, Ty Detmer and Steve Sarkisian.
Awards won by his players include a Heisman Trophy, a Maxwell Award, two Outland Trophies, four Davey O'Brien Awards, and 31 All-America citations. In 1984, he was named National Coach of the Year after BYU finished the season 13-0 and won the National Championship.
Edwards retired after the 2000 season with a 258-101-3 record, a .722 winning percentage. At the time of his retirement he ranked sixth in all-time victories. The Brigham Young football stadium was renamed in his honor.
The stadium opened in 1964 as Cougar Stadium, replacing a smaller, 5,000-seat stadium of the same name. The capacity of the facility was just under 30,000 with stands on both sides of the playing field. Seating was soon added to make room for 35,000 fans. Temporary bleachers placed at the back of the end zones raised the capacity to 45,000.
In 1982, the stadium was expanded to accommodate more than 65,000. Permanent concrete stands, separated by entryways from the east and west grandstands, were put in place of the temporary bleachers, the playing field was lowered eight feet and the track was removed.
At the end of the 2000 football season, the name of the stadium was changed to LaVell Edwards Stadium, in honor of the legendary head coach, who retired at the end of the season.
In 2003, in order to raise revenue, the stadium was redesigned to provide more luxury seating. The change resulted in seating capacity being reduced to 64,045. The luxury seating was a noticeable addition because the arrangement of blue and white seats in this section spell out BYU in block letters.
On August 30, 2008, BYU unveiled a new video board on the north endzone, allowing fans seated in the south endzone to see the instant replays and graphics which previously were shown only on the south board.
Highlights of the Stadium
LaVell Edwards Stadium is filled to capacity with new food choices for fans and spacious seats for the Cougar Club.THEY are the things BYU football fans dream about at night: priority parking close to LaVell Edwards Stadium, a pre-game chat with a BYU football coach over a hearty meal, prime midfield seats, and post-game highlights presented on big-screen TVs until the traffic dies down.
To enhance the game-day experience, BYU athletics has made such dreams a reality for Cougar Club members willing to pay the price. For donors who contribute at the $1,000 level, club season seats with all the benefits can be purchased at $1,000 a piece.
For donors at the $500 level, seats with fewer benefits can be purchased for $500. While the remodeled section reduced the overall stadium capacity by 1,000 seats, it will add about $1 million a year in revenue.
Many of the benefits are provided in a hospitality tent just outside the stadium. There, fans enjoy delectable pre-game meals featuring such specialty items as tender corned beef and fruit and marshmallows for dipping under the sumptuous cascades of a 4-foot chocolate fountain.
Fans can easily find their place in the stadium, since the new blue and white chairs in the middle of east sideline stands are arranged to spell out BYU in huge block letters.
When they get there, they find cup holders and extra legroom. On hot game days, they are served with ice cream and other cool treats; for cooler game days, they receive hot chocolate.
Compliments for Stadium
Former Air Force head football coach Fisher DeBerry has said of Edwards Stadium, "Probably the loudest and best stadium is whenever things are going good for BYU and their fans start beating on the metal bleachers. That can be a very tough place to play."
