Pink has started to make its way onto the high school football field. For one school in Iowa, it will soon find its way into the locker room.

Bondurant-Farrar (Bondurant, Iowa) will soon play its home games in a brand new stadium, thanks to the generosity of lottery winners Brian and Mary Lohse.

According to the Des Moines Register, The Lohses, who recently won the $202 million Powerball Jackpot, agreed to donate $3 million for a stadium that will be completed in time for the fall of 2014.

The Lohses' son Drake is a 6-foot-3 sophomore on the Bondurant-Farrar varsity squad and will be able to play his senior season in the new edifice.

The gift, however, comes with an interesting catch: The Lohses requested that the visitors' locker room be painted pink, an homage to the pink visiting locker room at Kinnick Stadium, home of the Iowa Hawkeyes, the family's favorite college football team.

"I was sort of half-joking and half-not I suppose, but they said they'd do it," Mary Lohse told the Des Moines Register.

Bondurant-Farrar, whose traditional school colors are blue and white, finished 10-3 last season.
