Track and Field (1958 to 1961)
Men's Basketball (1958 to 1961)
Kay McFarland did not play football at Colorado State University until his senior year and thanks to his talents on the basketball court received the attention of the San Francisco 49ers before he put pads on for the Rams. McFarland not only played basketball for Jim Williams from 1959 to 1961, he was an integral part of the 1960 and 1961 conference championship teams. In track he set a school long jump record in 1959 and earned three letters in both track and basketball.
McFarland was chosen in the 18th round of the 1961 NFL draft before playing his first and only season of football at CSU. It was not until after he graduated in 1962 that he played at the professional level. He played six years for the San Francisco 49ers from 1962 to 1968 during the head coaching career of CSU legend Jack Christiansen.
