Project Description

Placed at the foot of Baylor University's Floyd Casey Stadium, this monument to athletic prowess, personal achievement, and leadership abilities honors the school's most successful coach and author, Mr. Grant Teaff. The greatest element of contemporary construction (masonry) played a vital roll in this fast track project. Utilizing a masonry medium of custom split face and burnished CMU, the designers and owner based their selections on the factors of proven durability, varied application, and inherent beauty. They likened the masonry to the unyielding strength of character exemplified by the namesake selected to be immortalized here.

The project consists of eighty five custom split face columns and several hundred lineal feet of radiused retaining walls and screen walls. The retaining walls all incorporate a gentle variable slope. All of the columns and walls are crowned with bullnosed and burnished custom CMU caps and coping.

Brazos Masonry proudly chose to exclusively utilize employees enrolled in our apprenticeship school under the guidance, direction, and close supervision of one of our most seasoned foremen. We revel in the irony that we successfully used the future of our craft to build a monument honoring the past.
