About Shanty Hogan and the PC Football Team
The Shanty Hogan Golf Tournament is named in honor of Phoenix College’s late legendary coach Thomas “Shanty” Hogan. The golf tournament is an effort to support the football program at PC through the Shanty Hogan Legacy Fund established in 2007.
Coach Hogan is the most successful football and golf coach in the history of Phoenix College. In 1964, Shanty led the football team to a winning title when the PC Bears were named National Champions of the prestigious Shrine Bowl. Over the years, the titles and accolades continued to build for Shanty, including being named to the Arizona Sports Hall of Fame.
Coach Land Jacobsen and his coaching staff are looking forward to the 2012 season and returning the Phoenix College Football program to national prominence. With a bowl game and a national ranking in Coach Jacobsen’s first year, there is much anticipation as the Bears strive to build on their success.
