The Pruitt Football Center serves as the on-campus home for the Wake Forest football program. Fully renovated in 2004, the facility houses the coaches offices, the team locker room and team meeting rooms and is adjacent to the Doc Martin Football Practice Complex.

Visitors to the complex are greeted with a beautiful glass case that contains trophies from many of the team's accomplishments, including the 2006 ACC Championship trophy.

The main floor houses the office of head coach Dave Clawson, as well as a large video editing suite and a room designed specifically for NFL scouts where they are able to gather player information and watch film.

The team's spacious 3,500 square foot locker room is also located on the main floor of the complex. The locker room is filled with individual solid oak lockers and an equipment area, which houses each players' full football gear.

Directly outside of the locker room is a comfortable players' lounge with two flat screen high definition TVs and black leather sofas. Team members will often come here to relax between meetings or classes.

The focal point of the complex's second floor is Decker Auditorium. This 1,500 square foot team meeting space features 130 black leather seats, each embroidered with the Wake Forest logo.

Surrounding Decker Auditorium are the offices of each member of the football coaching staff. These offices are adjacent to their own position meeting rooms which offer state-of-the-art video systems.

The Demon Deacons also enjoy the convenience of practicing in the heart of Wake Forest's campus, right outside of the Pruitt Football Center. The Doc Martin Football Practice Complex, which was dedicated to Louis "Doc" Martin in 1989, is just steps away from the team's locker room. The facility's namesake Martin served as the athletic trainer for all of Wake Forest's athletic teams from 22 years from 1958-80.

The practice facility has three fields. The main field is artificial FieldTurf, which allows the Deacons to practice on the same playing surface as BB&T Field. The two side fields are natural grass.

Located adjacent to the practice field is a sports medicine area where trainers can immediately tend to injured players.
