Sun Devil Summer School: The Early Legends - Charles HaiglerPosted: Updated:
Arizona State fans, we're going to bypass the typical first day "Get to Know You" and dive right into our first "Sun Devil Summer School" lesson by taking a trip way, way back in our look at the earliest legends in program history.
Generally regarded as the first star football player in school history, Charlie Haigler played over a six-year span for the Territorial Normal School at Tempe/Normal School of Arizona before a four-year football career at USC. Though impossible by modern standards, no collegiate restrictions were in place to prevent Haigler from a decade of playing college football.
Born in Globe, Ariz., but raised in Tempe, according to records the powerful back was a member of the football squad under head coach Fred Irish from its very beginning through 1902.
