To the editor:
Don Fambrough positively affected thousands of lives during his many years of service to our community. Obviously he impacted football players and their families — not just helping them become better athletes but mentoring them to become productive and giving citizens as he was. I had the honor and privilege of being around Coach Fam in a number of settings: leading and playing in bands, civic organizations, supporting good causes, education and many others. I came away from every encounter a better person.
We do have (Phog) Allen Fieldhouse and the (Dick, Skipper and Odd) Williams Fund. I wish we had a Russell Wiley music building. But now the city leaders have a great opportunity to honor another Lawrence legend by naming one block of a street next to Memorial Stadium for Coach Fam. Let’s do it!
