Lucas Russo loved people and he made sure they knew they were loved.  His big personality, his big smile and his big laugh made everyone feel at ease and feel accepted, and his influence went far beyond any particular group or club, he had an impact on everyone he met. 

To help honor the legacy of Lucas Russo, the FHU student body is renaming the intramural field in Lucas’s name, but before the facility is worthy of his name, updates and improvements are needed. 

Some of these updates and improvements include: 

  • New fencing around the complex
  • Expanded parking lot
  • Updated lighting
  • Scoreboard 
  • Pressbox 
  • Pavillion
  • Updates to the playing surface

Once these improvements are made, each game that is played on Russo Field will further highlight the legacy of Lucas Russo.

Exciting Gift Matching Opportunity

Thank you for what you have done to honor the life and legacy of Lucas Russo by supporting the Lucas Russo Field project. 

Great news! To help this project finish strong, earlier today an anonymous donor stepped forward and offered to match dollar-for-dollar the next $3,000 given to this project. Essentially, the impact of the next $3,000 given will be doubled to benefit this project.

Please help spread the word to others you think may be interested in helping this project to finish strong. 

Thank you.
