Commemorative bricks for Putnam Stadium donor corner on sale until June 1

Ashland added to its football legacy with an undefeated 11-0 state championship season in 2020.

Now it’s your turn to add to that legacy but signing up to purchase a commemorative brick on the Donor Wall at Putnam Stadium to support the stadium restoration project. Plenty still needs to be done to finish off the stadium project, including lights, a sound system, field turf and the banked area behind the open end zone.

This fundraiser can help make some of those dreams come true for what is already one of the most iconic football stadiums in Kentucky.

Commemorative bricks are available for $100 (4×8)  or $175 (8×8) and they make a great way to honor the Tomcat in your life. The 4×8 brick gives you 3 lines and 20 characters and the 8×8 brick gives you 6 lines and 20 characters. It makes the perfect Father’s Day/birthday/Christmas gift.

You don’t have to be a football player or even an athlete to have your name – or a loved one’s name – placed in the donor corner of Putnam Stadium. Cheerleaders, band members and Tomcat fans have already put their names on bricks that adorn a special corner at the stadium around the statue of Coach Herb Conley.

Players who were a part of the 2020 championship football team, the 2019-20 undefeated basketball team and the 2019 Final Four girls’ soccer team seem like good candidates to have their names enshrined permanently in the donor corner as teams and individuals.

Those teams will be forever remembered in Ashland history for what was accomplished.

There’s plenty of room to add hundreds of bricks and support the stadium project in the process.

Ashland is riding a wave of momentum, becoming title town with regional championships in several sports during the past year and, of course, the Tomcats’ perfect 33-0 basketball season in 2019-2020.

Teams could be honored on the Donor Wall through the Tomcat Pride Club for $500.

The order has to be in by June 1 for the bricks to be made and placed by the start of the 2021 season.
