Pat Tillman graduated from ASU in 1998 with a bachelor's degree in marketing. During his time at ASU he excelled in the classroom and on the football field. In fact, he won ASU's MVP of the year in 1997. He also won the Clyde B. Smith Academic Award in 1996 and 1997, the Sporting News Honda Scholar-Athlete of the Year in 1997 and the 1998 Sun Angel Student Athlete of Year. Upon graduating in 1998 he was selected by the NFL during a draft to play for the Arizona Cardinals. Later in 2002 Tillman walked away from a 3-year $3.6 million dollar contract with the Cardinals to enlist in the Army. In 2004 he was unfortunately killed in action. He is since remembered as a legacy at ASU with the Pat Tillman Veterans Center on campus help student veterans today, the Tillman Tunnel and Statue, as well as the yearly Pat's run.
