MIDLAND, TX (KWES) -

The MISD school board approved the renaming of Memorial Stadium at their meeting on Monday night.

The stadium will be named “James Doc Dodson Midland Memorial Stadium” in honor of the former Midland High Athletic trainer who died earlier this fall.

James Doc Dodson was an athletic trainer for the Bulldogs for 32 years. Dodson also served as a trainer at the 1972 Olympic games in Munich.
