Packard Athletic Center & Finnie Locker Project

Packard Athletic Center

Opening July 2013, the Packard Athletic Center will be the new home for Yellow Jacket football along with the men's and women's lacrosse programs.  The former home of the Cleveland Browns has been renovated, expanded and renamed in honor of BW's most winning head football coach and BW alumnus, Bob Packard, Class of 1965.

The Center:

An impressive two-story lobby will greet recruits and their families as they take their first steps into the building.  Walking through the Center to meet with their future coaches, guests will have an opportunity to experience a blend of the past, present and future.  Just off the lobby, a new trophy case will celebrate the success of our programs and inspire current and future players.  Other features include a new weight room open to all athletes, a large three-section team meeting room, training and rehab rooms, players' lounge, football locker room, equipment and laundry rooms.  Located on the second level will be two small conference rooms and coaches' offices for football and men's & women's lacrosse.
