Address: 120 Whitford Dr, Durham, NC 27708
In August of 2002, the Duke football program moved into a new home - The Yoh Football Center.
Located in the northeast corner of Wallace Wade Stadium, the $22 million, 70,000-square foot facility is named for the Yoh Family on the strength of Trustee Chairman Spike Yoh and Mary Milus Yoh’s lead gift of $5.5 million.
The state-of-the art facility features a speed and agility room, lockerroom, coaches offices, weight room, sports medicine center, position group meeting rooms, a players lounge and a memorabilia floor. The completion of the building was celebrated with a ribbon-cutting dinner on August 30 - the night before Duke opened the 2002 season with a 24-16 victory over East Carolina - and a dedication dinner on October 4 during Homecoming Weekend.
Over 750 gifts were received to fund the project, with over half coming from former Blue Devil football players. The Duke Football Campaign, the fund-raising effort for the facility, was spearheaded by Dr. Frank Bassett and Leo Hart. Bassett, who served as Duke’s team physician from 1966-93, was honored by the National Association of Athletic Development Directors with the organization’s 2002 Volunteer of the Year Award. Hart, one of just three three-time first team All-ACC selections in Duke football history, played quarterback for the Blue Devils from 1968-70 and continues to rank among the school’s all-time passing leaders. In addition, tremendous support was given by the Gridiron Society which is chaired by Dr. Bob Deyton.
