Hug High School to rename stadium to honor Pack alum

Less than a week after former Nevada head football coach Chris Ault had the field at Mackay Stadium named in his honor one of his former players will receive  a similar honor on Friday evening.  Former Wolf Pack defensive back Rollins Stallworth will have the football stadium at Hug High School renamed in his honor.  The field will be Grove Holcomb Field at Rollins Stallworth Stadium.

Stallworth coached at Hug High School from 1993-2009 before becoming the vice principal at O'Brien Middle School.  In 2005 the Hawks advanced to the 4A state championship game.

After transferring from Merced College (Calif.) Stallworth played for coach Ault and the Wolf Pack during the 1979 and 1980 seasons at safety.  In 1980 he earned second-team All-Big Sky honors and was a team captain.  The 1979 team advanced to the semifinals of the 1AA playoffs before falling to Eastern Kentucky.
