During Forsan High School's first home football game of the season, Forsan ISD dedicated their recently re-turfed football field to former Forsan Athletic Director and Head Football Coach Roger Hudgins.
Roger Hudgins and his wife Pat Hudgins had served the Forsan community in a plethora of ways over the years. After retiring from twenty years of being the Head Football Coach, Roger became Mayor of Forsan for ten years, and Pat became the City Secretary. They influenced the community and led it in numerous ways such as their involvement with Forsan Baptist Church.
During the presentation of the plaque during Friday's field dedication, Pat was joined by numerous past coaches and even some athletes.
"Coach Hudgins was more than a Mayor and Coach. He was a father figure," said former Forsan athlete, Adam Dunlap.
When asked how she felt about the field dedication to her late husband Roger, Pat said that she was grateful for all that made this opportunity possible, and she felt that "thank you" were small words for the great honor.
Everyone who knew Roger hopes that his love for the game and others will be instilled upon everyone who plays on the field.
