8. Garrett Ford, TE/LB, 1989
Jeff Scurran, who was in his first season as Sabino's coach, credits Ford with setting the tone right away for the Sabercats' upcoming dominance. Ford, who originally signed with San Diego and then transferred to Colorado, was another do-it-all player who caught 20 passes for 300 yards and two scores to earn All-Southern Arizona first team honors as a senior, his only year under Scurran. While Garrett was the trendsetter for Sabino, his younger brother, Cole, carried it on as an All-State kicker with the 1990 state championship squad before he continued on to USC and then the NFL.
