LOGAN, Utah - Utah State University's Athletics Department will be honoring former equipment manager Ken Seamons by officially naming the equipment room in the Jim and Carol Laub Athletics-Academics Complex in his honor on Saturday, April 24 at 1 p.m.
A former Utah State football player, who wishes to remain anonymous, made the gift to name the equipment room in honor of Ken Seamons.
The ceremony will be held on the first floor of the Jim and Carol Laub Athletics-Academics Complex and is open to the public. A tour of USU's new 6,000 square foot equipment room will immediately follow the unveiling of the J. Ken "Kenny" Seamons Equipment Room. Following the tour, Utah State's football team will hold its Blue-White Spring Game, which is scheduled to begin at 2 p.m., on Merlin Olsen Field inside Romney Stadium.
"It is quite an honor to have the equipment room named after me," said Seamons. "I spent 26 years at Utah State, had a lot of good times, and met a lot of nice people from the student-athletes, to their parents and all the administrators. I have lived in Cache Valley my whole life and I am really excited about everything that is going on up at USU right now. I am truly an Aggie."
Seamons served as Utah State's head equipment manager from 1966 to 1992 and managed athletic equipment for every Aggie team while working out of a 915 square foot room. In 1991, he was named the Athletic Equipment Managers Association District 8 Equipment Manager of the Year.
