Phil George Phil George The Phil George Blue & Gold Dinner and Auction provides funds for scholarships, recruiting and support programs for ASU student-athletes. The event is aptly named for legendary ASU former coach and retired athletic director Phil George who led the San Angelo College basketball team to eight Pioneer Conference titles and the 1957 National Junior College Athletic Association Championship. In addition to basketball, George coached track, baseball, golf and the football offensive line. He coached several notable names, including former ASU and Baylor head football coach Grant Teaff and 1961 American League batting champion Norm Cash.
