Years at Arizona: 1990-93

Position: Running back

Lamont Lovett played special teams and was a running back for Arizona along with his brother Lamar, both hailing from Los Angeles. Lamont is the color analyst for radio broadcast on the Wildcat Sports Network. I listen to many broadcasts with Lamont and Brian Jeffries, the Voice of the Wildcats, on Sirius/XM, and Lamont has improved year by year with his analysis. It’s obvious he knows what he talks about through his experience. He made a big play in this rivalry, recovering a teammate’s fumble in the end zone for a touchdown at ASU in his senior year. The Wildcats won the game 34-20 before heading back to Sun Devil Stadium and defeating Miami in the Fiesta Bowl.

“My greatest UofA vs ASU memory was watching Art Greathouse limp around on a torn hamstring all week in practice and beg the coach to put him into the game, where he proceeded to rush for 100 yards and lead Arizona to victory (21-17 in Tucson). One of the gutsiest performances I have seen, because I know how hurt he was. That was 1990.”

Note: Lovett also talked to’s Brad Allis in 2010 about another UA-ASU rivalry memory involving former linebacker Donnie Salum.
