l ferrintr to the Universit of Kentuck ’s football setun alonv "Avenue ·

of Champions." ”
[ Officially, by action of the University Board of Trustees, the general g Q
area encompassing the playing field is known as "Stoll Field." Like-  
wise, by authority of the same body, the stadium proper is known as ;
"McLean Stadium."  
y Kentucky’s first football held, occupying the general site of what  
  is now the practice field west of the stadium, was first given a name  
` when it was dedicated on October 14, 1916, as Stoll Field in honor of ,
i the late judge Richard C. Stoll, prominent alumnus, trustee and bene- ` ,

KENTUCKY'S COLORS _
The blue and white of the University of Kentucky are known to
sports fans everywhere. Oilicially the colors are Yale blue and white,
but in the beginning, when the Lexington institution was still known
as the Agricultural and Mechanical College of Kentucky, the colors
were "Stoll blue" and white. One day back in the l890’s a group of
Kentucky football stalwarts met to choose their school colors. Someone
suggested blue and white—"blue like Dick Stoll’s necktie"—and those
colors were immediately adopted. "Dick" Stoll was to become judge
Richard C, Stoll, distinguished public servant and, for more than fifty
years before his death, a member of the U.K. board of trustees.

 BLANTON COLLIER
Head Football Coach
(Three Years —— Won 'I9, Lost l0, Tied ll
, A quiet-mannered native Kentuckian, who fulfilled a 1ife—long am-
bition wl1en he took over the coaching reins at his home-state univer-
sity in 1954, Blanton Collier is a man with a unique background and
a potentially great future.
\Vith only three years in the collegiate coaching ranks behind him,
the popular \Vildcat mentor is highly regarded in athletic circles the
country over and already has earned the distinction of "Coach of the
Year" in the tough Southeastern Conference, where a vote is harder
to get than campaign promises in july.
T In gaining this honor in his freshman season at Kentucky, an
achievement made all the more significant considering it was the first
