Utah athletic director Chris Hill continues to tap former Utes for donations to his 'Invest in Excellence' campaign with former Ute and current New York Jets lineman Sione Pouha and his wife Keiti contributing $50,000 to the funding of Utah's new football complex.
The alumni locker room, which will open for the 2013 season, will be named after Pouha, who was an all-conference defensive tackle for Utah's 2004 team that went undefeated.
Earlier this month, quarterbacks coach Brian Johnson donated $50,000 and former Ute Eric Weddle made a $250,000 donation in April.
Hill has set a goal of raising $150 million by 2016-17.
