Honor an SAU coaching legend by becoming a member of the Rip Powell Society

You can move SAU Football to the next level of excellence.

Southern Arkansas University is pleased to announce a unique opportunity for players and fans to recognize the commitment and accomplishment of Coach Rip Powell by joining the Rip Powell Society.  Your gift of $1,000 or more will secure your membership in this prestigious organization.  Members of the Rip Powell Society will be listed on a permanent plaque at Wilkins Stadium.  The goal of the Rip Powell Society is to raise funds to replace the existing scoreboard with a modern LED version, which features instant replay.  The new scoreboard will display the new field name Rip Powell Field.

Your gift will

  • honor Coach Powell for 28 years of service to Southern Arkansas University,
  • benefit the program that Coach Powell lifted to a new level of excellence, and
  • ensure continual facility improvements expected of a NCAA Division II program
