Craig Scoggins

Football 1965-66

Craig Scoggins

Hall of Fame Class of 2006

A member of San Diego State's undefeated 1966 national college division championship squad, Craig Scoggins earned three varsity letters during his two-year stint with the Aztecs, including two in football and one in baseball. In his first season on the football field, Scoggins teamed with another future Hall of Famer Garry Garrison to form one of the top receiving duos in the college ranks, combining for 118 catches.

In 1966, the La Mirada, Calif., native made a name for himself by logging 81 receptions for an NCAA season-leading 1,212 yards to earn first team all-conference honors. Both figures still rank in the SDSU single-season top 10, while his 129 career receptions are 11th in school history. Scoggins' finest individual performance came in his last regular season game, as he caught a then school-record 15 passes for a career best 239 yards and two touchdowns in a 29-12 victory over Cal State Los Angeles. The Aztecs would go on to claim a 28-7 win over Montana State in the Camellia Bowl, capping a perfect 11-0 season.

A transfer from Cerritos College, Scoggins was picked in the 15th round of the NFL Draft by the Chargers. He later coached baseball and softball at Torrey Pines High School and currently lives in Prescott, Ariz.
