Former UCLA player Andy Meyers donates $1 million to football facility

UCLA announced Thursday morning that former player Andy Meyers and his wife Shannon have committed $1 million toward the school’s plan to build a football facility west of Spaulding Field. Meyers was an All-Pac-10 guard and third-team All-American who is now the CEO of Shangri-La Construction.

“It is an honor for Shannon and I to give back to UCLA,” Andy Meyers said. “UCLA afforded me not only a great education but access to a great Bruin family in business.”

Part of the new facility will be named after the couple.

The project is budgeted at $50 million, and the school launched a fundraising campaign on Sept. 24. There is currently no scheduled date of completion.

    Andy has obviously done very well for himself… good for him!! Even better is that he is giving back. He was a great Bruin in his playing days and an even better one today. Thank you from all the fans who watched your great Bruin career.
