Namesake: William Gray and Barbara Keck Blount, both alumni of ECU, donated the land for the sports facilities. The building was dedicated on November 18, 1998.

History: Located behind Carol Belk Building on Charles Boulevard, the 21 field intramural sports complex has fine Bermuda grass, which has 10 football fields, 6 soccer fields, 5 softball fields, a ropes challenge course, and a field house for intramural use. Some fields are lit for use in the evenings, including 8 football and soccer fields and 4 softball fields. All fields must be reserved whether used for day or night activities. Approximately 300-500 students use the field each week for recreational purposes.

Funding for the Blount Recreation Sports Complex will come from student fees and donations. The Blount Family donated a large portion of land valued at $706,000 in which this facility is built on.
