Today we recognize the University of Arizona football team as the Wildcats, but if you were to step back in time and check out a game in the early 1900s, you would actually be cheering for the "Varsity football team". It wasn't until the football players exhibited nearly frantic, hyper activity during a 1914 game that a reporter compared their energy to a "wildcat"...and the name stuck.
In the 1990s, the Arizona Wildcats football team rose to their best decade of football athleticism. Head Coach Dick Tomey led the team to a Fiest Bowl win, a 1998 season record of 12-1 making them third in the nation.
Former head coach Jim Young is one of the most famous names to come from Arizona Wildcats football. Other notable names include current NFL players Bobby Wade, Michael Johnson, and Nick Folk. This list represents only a fraction of former University of Arizona football players who now compete in pro-level football.
