Phil Knight Has His Own Locker In Oregon's New $US68-Million Football Facility

Oregon’s new football facility is
like nothing we’ve ever seen in college sports.

There’s a lobby with 64 TVs, a barber shop, a crazy coaches’ war room, and a world-class weight room with a floor made of unbreakable Brazilian wood.

It reportedly cost $US68 million to build, though school officials told the New York Times that they actually had no idea how much the final cost was.

It was paid for by a donation from Nike founder and Oregon booster Phil Knight — who has been instrumental in turning the school into a football powerhouse through donations and Nike’s aggressive branding.

Knight is as much a part of the Oregon team as the players and coaches, so it’s fitting that he actually has his own locker in the facility’s space-age locker room.

It says “Uncle Phil”:

The lockerrom is gorgeous:

Every locker has double doors with the player’s name and hometown on it:

There’s a phone charging station:
