Badgers Head Coach Justin Argraves to watch former player of his in Super Bowl LII

The list of former Argraves players to play in college and beyond has grown rapidly over the last decade.

After watching a hand full of his former players take part in bowl games all over the country, as member of programs such as Arizona, San Diego State, TCU, New Mexico State and others, Tucson High Badgers varsity head football coach Justin Argraves saw former Badger Levi Wallace become a two-time National Champion with the Alabama Crimson Tide and begin his path toward the NFL Draft this spring.

Weeks after Wallace reached the pinnacle of college football for a second time, Argraves could possibly add a Super Bowl Champion to his list of players that were once under his guidance.

Current New England Patriots OLB Marquis Flowers was recruited to the Wildcats out of Millennium High School in Goodyear after spending his junior and senior year with Argraves as his defensive coordinator. Flowers played running back, wide receiver, and free safety in high school. After spending his college years with the Wildcats, Flowers was drafted by the Cincinnati Bengals in the sixth round of the 2014 NFL Draft. Just before the 2017 NFL regular season, Flowers was traded to the New England Patriots for a seventh round draft pick and has thrived under Patriots DC Matt Patricia‘s and HC Bill Belichick‘s defense.
