Today, we start a quasi-weekly series called “Facility Friday”. This series will tour the NAIA’s finest facilities While the NAIA doesn’t have the funds for the Taj Mahal like major programs, the facilities are still very nice. We start with the Faulkner Eagles from Montgomery, Alabama. Stallings Field is named for John Mark Stallings, son of legendary Alabama coach Gene Stallings. Let’s take a closer look at the home of the Eagles.
Billy D. Hilliard Stadium
Billy D. Hilliard Stadium seats 3500 fans. An on-campus facility, it would take less than 10 minutes for students at the farthest dorm to walk there. As mentioned before, the field is named for John Mark Stallings. If you’ve never heard John Mark’s story, I suggest looking into it.
While the Faulkner Football program kicked off in 2007, their first home game at “The Bill” came in 2012. Have a look at some other stadium pictures.
The Leopold D. Family Field House
The field house is beautiful, with many accessories – a beautiful floor plan, spacious lockers, four 5- inch televisions, and awesome graphics. Everything a player needs is here.

The Cramton Bowl
From 2007-2011, this was the home of the Faulkner Eagles. This is a huge stadium that now houses Friday Night high school football and the Camellia Bowl. If Faulkner and their cross-town rival Huntingdon ever renewed their series, this should be the venue every year.
