Coach West stresses the significance of this fundraiser. "The Highland Hundred golf tournament is the main support of our football camp, which is vital to our program. We appreciate the support of this very important event."
The Highland Hundred was created in 1958 when Billy "Spook" Murphy asked local business leaders to unite in the support of Tiger football. The name came into being because the group met near campus on Highland Street and the goal was to have 100 members with the common desire to support the Memphis football program.
