Jason Geathers


For recently named All-Ironman selection, SaberCat Jason Geathers, winning is nothing new. A high school Parade All-American, Geathers spent the next four years playing as a member of the most dominant collegiate football team of the era, the University of Miami Hurricanes. A National Championship in 2001, a near repeat the following season and a whole heap of wins were the results of his efforts.

As the San Jose SaberCats, proud owners of the most dominant regular season record since the turn of the century, begin their march toward the franchises third ArenaBowl Championship, the versatile Geathers is a welcomed asset.

University of Miami football fans remember Geathers as the ultimate all-purpose threat. Originally recruited as a running back, Geathers tenure in Coral Gables was played in the midst of an assembly line of all-world running back talent. The presence of then future NFL talent; Clinton Portis, Najeh Davenport, Frank Gore and Willis McGahee forced Geathers to adapt. And adapt is precisely what he did. Successfully alternating between tailback, wide-receiver and split-end; Geathers used his tremendous athleticism and speed to contribute in all facets of the game and was a key cog in the Hurricanes 34 game win streak.
