Danny Unruh Football Equipment Room

Thursday evening, June 9, the San José State Athletics Department honored long-time supporter Danny Unruh with the naming and dedication of the Danny Unruh Football Equipment Room, located in the Simpkins Stadium Center.

Unruh has assisted the equipment staff with football for many years.  During the season, he would arrive early enough to get the locker rooms stocked with towels and soap and assist with team laundry.  He also would help clean up after games and would say the room looked like a tornado because “tape makes it look like that.”

He also works with the basketball staff, especially at home games, where he can be seen distributing basketball to both teams before the game and at halftime. 

Spartan Athletics is grateful for Danny’s support and dedication to the department.

“It is with great Spartan Pride that we honor the Unruh Family, and in particular Danny, with the naming of the Danny Unruh Football Equipment Room in the Simpkins Stadium Center,” said Spartan Athletics Director Gene Bleymaier.
