Former FSU player starts petition to rename football stadium

first_imgKendrick Scott, a former Florida State linebacker who played for the Seminoles from 1991-94, created a online petition to rename Bobby Bowden Field at Doak S. Campbell Stadium.Campbell served as president of Florida State University during its transition from an all-female campus and was instrumental in getting the football stadium built, however, his pro-segregationist views are well documented.Scott said in the petition that Campbell’s “non-inclusive views of blacks as a segregationist is divisive, therefore his name should be removed from a stadium that has been home to many black football players helping to build the school and the tradition to what it has become today: a national treasure.”Instead, the stadium should be named after former quarterback Charlie Ward, the school’s first Heisman Trophy winner, Scott suggested.last_img read more
