John Purdue Club introduces the Lamar Lundy League to further recognize capital gift support

WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. Lamar Lundy was a twosport star at Purdue and the first AfricanAmerican
studentathlete to receive a football scholarship at the university. Among his many notable
accomplishments as a Boilermaker, he earned recognition as an AllBig Ten studentathlete and was
honored as MVP for both the football and basketball programs.

In an effort to honor Lundy`s legacy, the John Purdue Club will now recognize its most generous donors as
members of the Lamar Lundy League. This newly established group will acknowledge JPC members who
support Purdue Athletics above and beyond their annual membership with gifts $250,000 or more over a
five year period. Benefits associated with the Lundy League encompass experiences such as personalized
Lundy League credentials with game day access to areas of RossAde Stadium and Mackey Arena
including the RossAde Stadium Pavilion, pregame Rohrman Field access, and access to the premium
Spurgeon and Wooden club spaces during basketball season. Benefits also include, but are not limited to,
exclusive travel experiences to future games in Los Angeles, Hawaii, and elsewhere with Boilermaker

Lamar Lundy was a Purdue Athletics pioneer who exhibited excellence in all he did, said Executive
Senior Associate Athletics Director and Associate Vice President for Development, Tim House. “As we
thought about how to recognize supporters who continue that tradition of excellence and transformation, it
was obvious there is no more fitting namesake. Simply put, Purdue Athletics is the organization that makes
us all proud today because of Mr. Lundy`s decision to become a Boilermaker seventy years ago.”

A gifted and versatile athlete, Lundy went on to be drafted by organizations in both the National Football
League and National Basketball Association. He ultimately chose football and excelled throughout 13
seasons in the NFL with the Los Angeles Rams as a member of their famed “Fearsome Foursome” defensive
line. Lundy is one of only two athletes to be enshrined in both the Indiana Basketball and Indiana Football
Hall of Fame, and was inducted into the Purdue Intercollegiate Athletics Hall of Fame in 1995.
