About the Tom Porter Football Collection

The Tom Porter Football Collection contains digitized game tapes from 1936 to 2004. During his 32-tenure as Head Coach, Tom Porter ‘51 (1929-2013) led the team through six conference championships and St. Olaf’s only appearance in the NCAA playoffs. Porter finished his career with a record of 171-119-5, ranking him seventh among NCAA III coaches. Caleb Golberg ‘21 worked to match game notes, rosters (including captain and MVP information), records, and team photos to their respective films. This collection is unprocessed and undescribed, but the videos offer access and insight to the history of the St. Olaf football team.
