Kevin Beam.JPGEvery player has a role to play...

Hardin-Simmons Football has created a long-standing tradition of excellence. That excellence is based on the hard work and dedication that began many years ago and remains steadfast today thanks to hundreds of players like you.

Many of us know the successes we’ve had off the field – in government, as coaches, in business, law, ministry, the medical field, etc. – thanks in part to the lessons and successes we had as a team. The time we spent on the field and in the locker room helped forge us into the men we are today. Those experiences have overlapped into our families, work relationships, and influenced our commitments to our communities and our Christian lives.

Being an HSU Cowboy means so much more than just suiting up on game day. Today’s students are committed to excellence in education and to giving back to the Abilene and Hardin-Simmons communities. They recognize the responsibility they have as leaders.   

HSU Locker Room Transformation Underway from Hardin-Simmons University on Vimeo.

After 25 years, it’s time to make improvements to our facilities inside the field house. The locker room is being renovated and the 189 heavily used lockers will soon be replaced with new pristine oak lockers that will serve as inspiration and a recruiting tool for years to come. To make this happen, we need your help.

The total cost of the project is $150,000. We have several donation levels available for a one-time or 12-month payment plan (plaques will not be ordered for lockers until final payment is received). The renovation is already in progress, click here to see what's happening.

On behalf of myself, my coaching staff and all the current HSU players I thank you for your support. It is a privilege and honor to coach these young men into fine Christian leaders.
