1983 NAU Athletics Hall of Fame Class

Max Spilsbury (Football Coach, 1956-64)

The winningest football coach in Lumberjack history, his teams compiled a nine-year record of 59-24-5.  Spilsbury's 1958 team-considered by many to be NAU's best ever-compiled an 11-1 record, losing the NAIA Championship game to Northeastern Oklahoma State, 19-13.  More than 40 of his players were All Frontier Conference, and 15 signed professional contracts.  He was elected to the Arizona Sports Hall of Fame in 1971.
