History: The 1951 undefeated University of San Francisco Dons were more than just one of the best college teams in history; They showed integrity & honor by refusing an invitation to the Orange Bowl as it meant the 2 African-American players on the team would not be allowed to play. That 1951 squad produced 3 future NFL Hall of Famers in Ollie Matson, Gino Marchetti & Bob St. Clair. The USF Dons no longer field a football team with 1982 being their last season.
Please note: Within the wool yarns, there may be some slight color variations. This is an inherent trait of the authentic wool we use. This should not be considered a flaw, but like the original garment, merely part of its charm.
