Organizing important Alumni social events is one of the primary objectives of the “NEW” Thunderbird Football Alumni. After a long difficult period of “Social Distancing” we are pleased to be able to have our first Alumni social event, “The TFA Legacy Golf Classic”. The precursor to this event was the Frank Gnup Classic, which ran for over 25 years. It was always the first Thursday in July and was always sold out. Alumni from several decades came together for a day of camaraderie , Golf, Fun, and Fund raising. The Gnup Classic was not only a great Alumni social event, it also raised a lot of money for the Thunderbird Football program.

Several Alumni have asked the TFA to start or restart what was once a Great Thunderbird Football Alumni Tradition and we have responded by organizing the newest Football Alumni Classic, “The TFA Legacy Classic”!

The focus of “The TFA Legacy Classic” will be to bring Alumni together for a day of Camaraderie, Competition, Reunion, Fun-raising and Fundraising. We intend the TFA Legacy Classic to leave as great a legacy as the Gnup Classic did for over 25 years.

We are now calling on Alumni to step up and register themselves, or preferably a team of 4 in the Legacy Classic.

Also, we are looking for Event Sponsors to help financially in putting on the “TFA Legacy Golf Classic” in the following areas:

  • 1 x Presenting Sponsor,
  • 2 x Premium Sponsors
  • 18 x hole Sponsors
  • other sponsor opportunities are available as well

If you can help with any type of sponsorship for the TFA Legacy Classic, or would like more detailed information, please contact:
