Lamar Hunt and his wife, Norma, a former Richardson High School American history teacher, have made a tangible difference in the lives of many through their generous spirit and the love of “games.” Hunt is known world-wide for his influences in the games of football, soccer and tennis. He and K.S. “Bud” Adams founded the American Football League and he was a principal negotiator in the merger of the AFL and the NFL in 1966. He founded the Dallas Texans, later to become the Kansas City Chiefs. He is credited with coining the name of the Super Bowl based on his children’s toy “Super Ball,” and he also formed World Championship Tennis in 1967. He pioneered professional soccer in the U.S. and he further made U.S. and Texassoccer history in building two pre-eminent soccer-specific facilities, one in Ohio and one in Frisco. The Hunt family worked closely with the City of Frisco and Frisco Independent School District to bring Pizza Hut Park, the first soccer stadium built through a coordination of both private and public funds, and FC Dallas to Frisco, a move that helped further put the community on the map and brought millions of visitors to our area. Hunt was known for his integrity, his vision, and his humility. His wife and four children and many grandchildren continue to support his many interests. Young people across the Metroplex and the country have benefited from his vision and his passion for providing opportunities through athletics.
