Woodlawn High School Opens Stadium Named After Def Jam Prez

Last week, Woodlawn High School held opening ceremonies at the Kevin W. Liles Stadium in Baltimore, named after the President of Def Jam Records.Liles donated $150,000 to build a 2,000 seat stadium at his alma mater. He graduated from Woodlawn in 1986 and attended Morgan State University.Liles left college shortly before graduation, for an internship at Def Jam in 1991. The gamble paid off for Liles, who was named President of the label in 1998.The stadium is the largest of all public high school stadiums in the Baltimore County.The $550,000 project will be completed next season when the lighting for the night games are installed.
