Erwin Lee Remembrance

On Wednesday, August 11, 2021 at 5:00pm Navarro ISD will be having a remembrance for the 50 year anniversary of the death of Ruel Erwin and Normal Lee who died setting up Erwin-Lee Field for the first year of football in Navarro.

Erwin-Lee football stadium at Navarro High School is named in honor of Head Football Coach Ruel Erwin and Ag Teacher Norman Lee. These two men died on August 11, 1971 while helping the Navarro High School Panthers field their first football team. Many in the community do not know the history of why the field is named after these men. For more information about the project visit the Erwin - Lee Football Field Memorial Facebook page
