Dr. David Buttross III and Scott Doyle have been honored for their outstanding commitment to McNeese State University athletics with the renaming of the End Zone Room to the Buttross-Doyle End Zone Room.
Dr. Buttross and Scott led the planning and fundraising campaign to renovate and expand the Jack V. Doland Field House that began in 2003 and ended with a grand opening celebration on Sept. 9, 2011.
The $8.25 million project added an additional 30,141 square feet, including a second floor, to the original facility that was built in 1965. The key features of the expansion included a modern and expanded weight room, team meeting rooms, enlarged football dressing room, ticket office, offices for coaches and administrative staff, academic resource center for all student athlete, and a clubroom with outdoor seating that is known as the End Zone Room. The End Zone Room provides a revenue generating addition to the football stadium complex.

It is solely because of the vision, dedication, perseverance and personal donations of Dr. Buttross and Scott that the Doland Field House Project became a reality.
