Tonight's Guest Sparky: Captain Rich Woerth, Tempe Fire Captain

ASU is doing an admirable job honoring the victims of 9/11 for tonight’s game.

Tempe firefighter Rich Woerth will be tonight’s “guest Sparky”, throwing the pitchfork into the turf as the team runs onto the field.

Woerth was one of many Tempe firefighters who traveled to Manhattan in the aftermath of the attacks to help provide aid and support the survivors.

Interestingly enough, Woerth also played collegiate football at NAU.
