The Daily Journal has a piece about the possible naming of the BHS football field
The stadium field at Burlingame High School could be named after a champion of the school’s athletic department once the stadium’s bleachers are complete by fall of next year.
Thursday night, the San Mateo Union High School District’s Board of Trustees discussed naming the field after Panther class of 1954 alumnus Peter Umland, who died in September 2001 shortly after being named Alumnus of the Year. He was 66.

Umland and his wife Dolores made the district a residual beneficiary in the Peter S. Umland and Dolores T. Umland Trust. Under the trust, portions of the residual estate are bequest to the district “for use by the Burlingame High School Athletic Department in its athletic endeavors.”
