Temporary memorial for Selmon designated near Raymond James Stadium



The Tampa Bay Buccaneers, University of South Florida and the Tampa Sports Authority have designated a space at Raymond James Stadium for a temporary memorial for Lee Roy Selmon.

Selmon, 56, died Sunday from complications of a stroke.

People wishing to leave tributes to Selmon, the Bucs Hall of Fame defensive end and former USF athletic director, are free to place flowers, cards or remembrances on the tree-shaded mound in the middle of the mass transit drop-off turnaround on Dale Mabry.  Signage for the drop off location near the pedestrian footbridge crossing over Dale Mabry will be displayed Tuesday after 5 p.m.  Drop-offs may begin Tuesday after 5 p.m. and continue through game day on Sunday, September 11. 

The Selmon family has suggested that in lieu of flowers, those wishing to further honor Lee Roy’s memory consider making donations to Abe Brown Ministries  (813 248 3224) or the University of South Florida Foundation Partnership for Athletics (813 974 2125).
