|Spartan Foundation Salutes Andy Ghiggeri|
Taking a look at Spartan Foundation fund drive captain Andy Ghiggeri by the numbers and the range goes from simple to stupendous.
"I love athletics even though I wasn't an athlete," says Ghiggeri, who is one of the most visible Spartan fans whether it's at home in Spartan Stadium or away from home. The Ghiggeri name can be found throughout the South Campus. In the Simpkins Stadium Center, take a peek outside the door of the offensive coordinator and at the acrylic donor presentations in the building's foyer.
"The flag flies for the University with our teams. Books and athletics go together; it's part of the college experience. Tailgating, marching bands and the pageantry make it special. I have also met some wonderful people in the department over the years," he adds.
Ghiggeri points to the 1986 season and the 45-41 record-setting win over Fresno State in Spartan Stadium on October 4 as his #1-favorite among his current streak of unbroken attendance at San Jose State football games.
Keep in mind, Ghiggeri supports more football at San Jose State. He was an overseas companion with the men's basketball team in 2007 and 2011 when the Spartans toured England and Italy, respectively.
The Spartan Foundation thanks Andy Ghiggeri for his unwavering support of San
Jose State Athletics. He can add two more football monuments to his all-time list
this season when the Spartans head to the Alamodome in San Antonio, Texas and
Annapolis, Md., to take on the Naval Academy.
