LAKELAND, FL – Florida Southern College officially dedicated Streamline Sale Arena at George W. Jenkins Field House in a pregame ceremony on Saturday evening just prior to the Moccasins' men's basketball contest against Stonehill.
A founding member of the 6th Man Club, Harold "Streamline" Sale was one of the most ardent supporters of the Florida Southern men's basketball program. His efforts to create a booster club for men's basketball has resulted in decades-long support from one of the best fan bases in all of NCAA Division II athletics.
Streamline and his wife, Bonnie, were mainstays at Florida Southern home games and could often be found in the stands at road games supporting the team. A 2013 honorary inductee into the Florida Southern Athletics Hall of Fame, Streamline Sale will forever be cemented in Moccasin history thanks to the generosity of his family.
"We are proud to recognize the extraordinary enthusiasm and lasting contributions of Harold 'Streamline' Sale in support of our championship Mocs," said President Anne Kerr.
Originally completed in 1965, Jenkins Field House replaced the small Gilbert Gym that had served as the College's basketball court. In recent years, the Field House has undergone renovations to its bleachers, sound system, and lobby area. With a seating capacity of 1,800, the arena at George W. Jenkins Field House has been the host site of numerous Sunshine State Conference and NCAA Regional Championships, as well as a variety of campus events and special speakers.
