History of the phrase Bear Down!
There's no doubt that at any game and at any time on the University of Arizona campus you will hear the phrase "bear down". The University of Arizona Wildcats' battle cry of "Bear Down" comes from the dying words of a popular student-athlete, John "Button" Salmon. He was president of the student body, starting quarterback, and three-year catcher for the baseball team.

In 1926, Salmon was in a tragic car accident that left him with a serious spinal cord injury. He passed away on October 18, 1926 but not before he could deliver a final message to his teammates, given to coach McKale -  "Tell them...tell the team to bear down."

A year later the student body voted to make "Bear Down" the official slogan of all Wildcat teams and in 1939 the State of Arizona issued a proclamation declaring the phrase "Bear Down" to be the sole and exclusive property of the University of Arizona.
