Lee Hutton is a product of my alma mater La Marque HS in Texas.

After going bankrupt in 2019, the Arena Football League announced Wednesday that it is returning in 2024 under new ownership. The F1 Sports & Entertainment investment group, the same association that purchased the rights to the AFL in 2022, will be taking over the league, and Lee A. Hutton III will be its new commissioner.

This would make Hutton the first Black commissioner to lead a professional sports league in the United States. Hutton was an attorney that represented Fortune 500 companies, athletes, celebrities and artists, per the release.
