In Memory: Victor Cahoon #31

Dec. 17, 2003

All of us in the Arizona State University football family are saddened by the sudden and unexpected passing of former student-athlete Victor Cahoon. Victor ran a successful business in Los Angeles. We saw him at the ASU-UCLA football game earlier this fall. He died of a heart attack on Monday. He was from Manassas, Virginia.

There will be a moment of silence in his honor prior to the men's basketball game on Monday, Dec. 22.

Cahoon, who was an all-around athlete, playing wide receiver, tailback and special teams for Arizona State from 1987-90, suddenly passed away from a heart attack on Monday, December 15 in Los Angeles at the age of 35.

After redshirting in 1986, Cahoon played in 11 games in 1987, rushing for 191 yards on 45 carries and scored two touchdowns. He also returned nine kickoffs for 221 yards, averaging over 24 yards per return. In 1988, Cahoon again played in 11 games with three starts, gaining 156 yards and catching 10 passes for 70 yards. He returned 17 kickoffs for 272 yards.

The 1989 season, Cahoon moved to wide receiver where he led the Sun Devils in kickoff returns, with 22 for 416 yards, an average of 18.9 yards per return. In his final season (1990), he caught a career-high 20 passes for 289 yards, averaging 14.4 yards per catch. Against Houston, Cahoon caught seven passes for 106 yards, including one that went for 51 yards.
