For over 90 years, our student-athletes have played “home” games on dozens of area soccer, football, and softball fields. In 2023, the Cavaliers are coming home.

Bring the Cavaliers Home. 
Be Recognized for Generations to Come.

We appreciate your continued support of the Castle. Your gift, along with the Fath’s million-dollar match, ensures that Staubach Stadium will be completed to watch the Cavaliers in their glory HOME ON HACKBERRY. We’ve got the field, we’ve got the grandstands, we’ve got the concession stand and restrooms under construction …

There’s just one thing left.

We need one final push to light up Staubach Stadium.
