LEESBURG - The first football team in Leesburg High School was assembled in 1924 they played in
Cooke Field however the need for a stadium was evident. Therefore, the Chamber of Commerce,
several civic club members along with people from the community like George Rast, H.B. Harrell, Sr.
and Walter Kessler promoted a drive to build a stadium.


The stadium called Memorial Field was dedicated to war veterans and victims of War World II. It was
finished in 1951. Ray Hayes Gymnasium was completed in 1953.
