1983 NAU Athletics Hall of Fame Class

1958 Lumberjacks Football Team 

Playing under the name of Arizona State College at Flagstaff, Max Spilsbury's 1958 squad made history when it became the first Arizona collegiate team to appear on a nationally televised sporting event-the 1958 Holiday Bowl from St. Petersburg, Florida.  Although it lost that NAIA Championship game to Northeastern Oklahoma State, 19-13, the team finished with an 11-1 record, and a No. 2 national ranking.
