When Katy ISD solicited the community for stadium naming nominations, they definitely got a great response. Here are some of the people that were nominated and who Legacy Stadium could've been named after (in no particular order).

1. DALTON STADIUM

What's not to love about Andy Dalton, a former Katy Tiger and current starting quarterback for the Cincinnati Bengals? He's not only a fantastic athlete, he is also an all-around great guy who gives back to children's charities through the Andy and Jordan Dalton foundation. In fact, the only time Katy Magazine had the pleasure of meeting him was when he donated the "Hub" to Texas Children's Hospital - West Campus. (A super high-tech, mobile traveling gaming station for hospitalized kids). Actually, all of the Katy Daltons are pretty darn wonderful. Great nomination in our book!

2. PATTY HENSON STADIUM

We can see why this lovely Katy icon was nominated. As the 35-year director of Katy's Bengal Brigade and Cheerleaders, she has mentored and shaped over 4000+ young women...and counting. Some of her talented dancers moved on to become Rockets, Texans, and Spurs cheerleaders. One was a background dancer for Beyonce. And rumor has it she still stays in touch with her most famous student to date: Renee Zellweger. Great nominee!
