While Jim Faulks was arguably at better basketball than football, winning the 1959 state championship, the running back broke the city rushing record with 1,321 yards in 1958. Faulks, who earned All-State honorable mention, also had 144 points that year and his 314 yards in a single game also stood as a Tucson city record for more than 45 years. Faulks still holds three school rushing records and went on to start three years at the UA. He was the starting quarterback for the Wildcats in 1963.
