"The generosity of the Seal family has always set a great example of philanthropic donations to Mississippi State, both academics and athletics. Not only is it the largest gift in our athletics history, it will most likely be one of the largest gifts in all of college athletics this year. Lee and Leo have carried on the legacy of giving set forth by their father and grandfather."The new football complex has been a vision Dan Mullen has had since he arrived in Starkville. He too responded with admiration and appreciation:
"I'm extremely appreciative of the Seals and other families who have helped make this a reality. This is a vital addition to our football program. We've talked since I've arrived at Mississippi State about getting all of our football operations under one roof, allowing us to have a daily interaction with each of our football players and continuing to develop the family atmosphere around our program. This will accomplish those goals."In addition to the football complex, renovations are also planned for the football practice field.
