San Diego State Aztecs History
Over the 93 year
history of the San Diego State Aztecs football program, many incredible players have taken the field donning the scarlet and
black. The most famous of all of the Aztecs alumni is probably superstar running back Marshall Faulk, who played for San Diego
State before being drafted with the second overall pick in the 1994 NFL Draft by the Indianapolis Colts. Faulk would go on
to be a dominant player both for the Colts and for the Rams, eventually leading St. Louis to a Super Bowl title and getting
himself elected in the NFL Hall of Fame. Other notable Aztecs in the NFL are Pro Bowl cornerback Willie Buchanon, head coaches
like John Fox and Joe Gibbs and plenty of others, and you never know when the next great player is going to burst onto the
scene to become the next all-time great Aztec.
San Diego Aztecs Trivia
Did you know that Marshall Faulk
was three-time First Team All-American for San Diego State?
It didn't take long for all of college football to realize
how good Faulk was, as the shifty running back became an All-American in his freshman year in 1991 and then did the same thing
in both 1992 and 1993. Of course, in that freshman year it helped when he ran for 386 yards and seven touchdowns in just his
second college game in his career, announcing fairly loud that he was a player not to be trifled with.
