Peter Fardon

Field Tested

Senior Peter Fardon is a 29-year-old communication major hailing from Brisbane, Australia. He travelled halfway around the world to play Division I football for the Bulls, calling his experience “a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to play the sport at this level.” A scholar-athlete with a GPA over 3.4, Fardon has his sights set on becoming an athletic director. As the Bulls’ lucky #13, Fardon helped his teammates go all the way to win the Mid-American Conference championship title in 2008, his freshman year.

Check out Fardon’s “Kickin' It,” blog, which he runs as a communications intern for the Bulls. It follows the team through their season.
