On April 22, 2011, the former South College Field House was renamed the Glenn Morris Field House, after CSU athlete and Olympian Glenn Morris. Earning the title "World's Greatest Athlete," Morris won a gold medal in the decathlon in the 1936 Olympics in Berlin, topping his own world record with 7,990 points that would stand for 14 years. He also played a short stint in the NFL and showed off his acting talents as Tarzan in Tarzan's Revenge (1938).
Prior to the opening of Moby Arena in 1968, the Rams' basketball team played in the Field House.
The venue contains three main wings: the south area, which includes the indoor track; the middle area, which houses offices and locker rooms; and the north area, which is where the basketball team formerly played and now is used for indoor court sports.
During the early 1990s, movie producers used the Field House to film a scene from A League of Their Own (1992), starring Geena Davis and Tom Hanks. The script included a switch-hitting slugger named Marla Hooch (Megan Cavanagh), who in the movie hailed from Fort Collins.
