TACOMA, Washington – The Puget Sound athletic department paid special homage to the 1967 Logger football team during Homecoming and Family Weekend.
Members of the '67 team were honored during halftime of the Puget Sound football game against Lewis & Clark on Saturday, Oct. 7. The 1967 Loggers also recently received special recognition from the city of Tacoma. The Puget Sound football team from 50 years ago was the first to compete at the NCAA College Division.
That Logger team set 41 program records. Among the many remarkable accomplishments that year was Jerome "The Jet" Crawford's game against Whitworth. Crawford returned three punts for a touchdown during the Loggers' win, a feat that still stands as an NCAA record to this day.
Former Puget Sound student-athletes from the "Green & Gold" era (1968-1998) were also celebrated during the weekend, including a special dinner with University of Puget Sound President Isiaah Crawford. President Crawford wore a vintage Puget Sound Green & Gold baseball jersey that evening.
