As a result of recent action by the Benton County School Board Camden Central High School’s football stadium will be named “Tommy Richardson Stadium.” Tommy Richardson coached the Camden Lions in the mid 60′s to the early 70′s. His 1965 Squad was undefeated with a record of 11-0. He’s a recent inductee of the Benton County Sports Hall of Fame and will attend the Camden-South Gibson Football Game on August 23rd to be recognized.
