"Never-Say-Die" Was Phoenix Union's Motto in '59

Harold Gossett (50) recovers a loose ball with Pete Thyrion (44) right behind in the Coyote's 32-12 win over Tempe.

Phoenix Union's Coyotes were truly the wonder team of the 1959 football season running up a 7-1-1 record including six straight wins. Given only an outside chance of coming up with a winner, Coach Sam Winningham found his team had jelled early and watched the Pack come from behind to defeat West, 14-13, and Yuma, 27-25. Highlight of the season saw the Coyotes' unbelievable tie with Mesa and the big victory over North High.
