Faulkner dedicates football field to Gene Stallings’ son

MONTGOMERY, Ala. — Coach Gene Stallings and his wife, Ruth Ann, greeted more than 600 fans and well-wishers at the recent dedication of John Mark Stallings Field at Faulkner University in Montgomery, Ala.
“Beyond my wildest dreams” is how Stallings described the naming of Faulkner’s football field in memory of his late son, who was born with Down syndrome.
“This is such a wonderful, unbelievable day for Ruth Ann and me — to have a football field named after little Johnny,” said Stallings, a Church of Christ member and former coach for the University of Alabama, Texas A&M and the NFL’s Cardinals.
