BELTON, Texas (KWTX) - Often stadiums are named after people and at first communities are familiar, but years later their name might remain on the stadium while their story and legacy starts to fade.

We’re trying to tell those stories, starting with Belton’s Wilson-Kerzee field. It’s named after Harry Wilson and Richard Kerzee.

Wilson was a standout football player and Kerzee was a promising young soccer player.

Both experienced tragic accidents, which caused the community to rally together.
