As the new C.A.T.S Academic Center continues to grow where the third base stands of Sancet Stadium once stood, former Arizona Wildcats quarterback Nick Foles and his wife and former U of A volleyball player Tori, committed $250k to the project to assist with the construction. "The University of Arizona and the athletics department mean so much to Tori and I," Nick said in a statement. "We had such a tremendous experience and our time there prepared us well for the future. We decided this project was the perfect opportunity to show our appreciation. We know this will have a positive impact on all the current and future Wildcats and we’re happy to join forces with everyone who is supporting the new academics center."
