The recent round of renovations are just a continuation of upgrades across athletic facilities throughout campus, as the changes initially started with new scoreboards on the baseball and softball fields, followed by work being done to the Pepsico Tennis Courts, the upgrades to Cleve L. Abbot Alumni Memorial Stadium and the new football facility that included a new training room, locker rooms, and player lounge.

The advancements to the locker rooms and addition of video board are possible after a $78,000 donation from the Tuskegee Alumni Housing Foundation. The funds will also be allocated to new flooring, ceiling, lounge area, nutrition station and upgraded training room inside of the facility.
