A. Fall of 1915

In the fall of 1915, Northern Arizona Normal School's football team was nicknamed the "Lumberjacks" upon playing its first interscholastic game against Winslow High School. Under Coach Clarence D. Thorpe, the Lumberjacks defeated Winslow High 26-0. The nickname itself derived from the fact that lumbering was the most prominent industry in Flagstaff at the time.
