Six of the eight Pac-12 representatives in the inaugural College Football Hall of Fame class were coaches — including legendary Stanford coaches Walter Camp, Pop Warner and Fielding H. Yost.

Camp, Warner and Yost were considered pioneers in the sport and known as the founding fathers of modern-day football.

Howard Jones won five Rose Bowls and four national titles for Southern California.

Harold Muller became the first West Coast player to be named an All-American.

George “Wildcat” Wilson is one of three Huskies to have their jersey retired by Washington and is a member of the College Football and Rose Bowl Halls of Fame.
