In 1899 the University of Arizona got football team of their very own. They were called "Varsity" and had a mister James "Pop" McKale as their team coach. This team later became what we call the Arizona Wildcats. Their catchy name came from a sports writer by the name of Bill Henry. Mr. Henry wrote in his article that "The Arizona men showed the fight of wildcats". The name stuck even to this day. This all American team wears our nations proudest colors; red, white, and blue. They have three shirts, three pants, and two helmets that they switch up based on the team they are playing. In the past they wore bright red socks, but in 2010 switched to white colored socks for the team.



Some of the teams most famous players include drop-kicker/receiver Harold "Nosey" McClellan, who scored 124 points and led the nation in 1921. Starting Halfback Art Luppino became famous in 1954 under coach Warren B. Woodson for leading our great nation in several categories including rushing, scoring, all-purpose running, and kickoff returns! Luppino was the very first player in the history of NCAA to lead the nation in rushing two separate times! Theopolis "T" Bell, a receiver, was named All-America and a fullback by the name of Jim Upchurch become the second Wildcat to rush two seasons in a row for 1,000 yards!

Major wins include the Aloha Bowl against North Carolina on December 27, 1986 30-21. The Copper Bowl against NY State on December 27, 1986 17-10. The Fiesta Bowl on January 1, 1994 against Miami, 29-0. The Insight.com Bowl on December 27, 1997 against New Mexico 20-14. The Holiday Bowl on December 30, 1998 against Nebraska 26-20. The Las Vegas Bowl on December 20, 2008 against BYU, 31-21. It is also important to acknowledge that they tied the Georgia team at the Sun Bowl on December 28, 1985 13 to 13!

The team has come a long was since their humble beginning, been given a great name, and produced several major sports stars, and UA won 6 bowl games. Little boys, teens, and athletes in their early twenties all dream of playing for UA, and one day want to become an Arizona Wildcat.
