This former member of the Secret Society played varsity football at La Jolla High School for four years. He is the only player in the history of the school to make the varsity as a freshman. One of the best all around athletes to graduate from La Jolla, Jarvie is one of only three defenders in school history to score points in every defensive category for which points are tabulated. This feat was also accomplished by Thomas Bowman who played varsity football for the Vikings from 2007 to 2008 and Pat Kelly who played from 1995-1996. Jarvie finished his Viking career having made 234 tackles (178 unassisted), 10 interceptions and 18 break ups. He caused 5 fumbles, recovered one fumble, scored one defensive touchdown and blocked 9 kicks. He finished his Viking career with 808 total defensive points. 

Jarvie was also an exceptional kicker and kick returner for the Vikings. Assuming the place kicking responsibilities during his junior and senior years, Jarvie kicked 6 field goals and converted on 19 extra point attempts. He averaged 39 yards per punt and held opponents to less than 7 yards per return. He kicked off 57 times with no kick ever returned for a touchdown. As a senior he was also asked to assume the quarterbacking duties and responded by completing 50 passes for 615 yards and 6 touchdowns. He also rushed for 230 yards and 6 six touchdowns.

Jarvie was the recipient of many post season honors in both his junior and senior years. Along with being an All-League player in 1996, he was selected the Western League Defensive Player of the Year. He was also selected to the First Team of the Union-Tribune’s All-Academic squad. In 1997 he was once again All-League and an All-Academic selection. This same year he won the Gene Edwards Ironman Award and was selected the team’s Most Valuable Player. Jarvie was also selected to the county’s All-CIF First Team.

Prior to the start of the 1997 football season Jarvie accepted an early scholarship offer from the University of Arizona. In accepting the scholarship Jarvie chose to step into the shadow of former Secret Society greats Allan Durden, Chuck Cecil, Jeff Hammerschmidt and David Fipp. After redshirting his freshman year Jarvie was asked to do what none of his predecessors were ever asked to do…start as a redshirt freshman. Thrust into the starting line up because of an injury to the starting free safety against Texas Christian University, Jarvie responded with 5 tackles, a forced fumble and a pass break up that prevented TCU from driving for a winning score late in the game. Jarvie went on to start six  more games for the Wildacats and was a major contributor to an Arizona secondary that had suffered a number of debilitating injuries. Jarvie returned next season to become Arizona's starting free safety and the leader of a young Wildcat secondary. He recorded 26 tackles, had five pass deflections and led the team with three forced fumbles. For his career Jarvie started a total of 36 games. He recorded 175 total tackles, had 4 interceptions, 12 pass break-ups, 4 caused fumbles and 3 recovered fumbles. His senior year he was selected Team Captain and was the recipient of Arizona's Golden "A" Award.  

 Jarvie became the fifth member of the Secret Society to assume the role of starting free safety for the University of Arizona. In doing so he has contributed to a great tradition of San Diego safeties that have found great success in the Wildcat secondary. Like all his predecessors before him, Jarvie has demonstrated a willingness to make all the self-sacrifices necessary to attain success at this level of competition. In addition, he has always  exhibited  a positive team attitude and humility that is required of athletes who aspire to become outstanding players. Jarvie has served as a positive role model for all future members of the Secret Society who some day might decide to seek athletic success on the collegiate playing fields across the United States.

For his his constant projection of a first class image, leadership and excellence in both the classroom and gridiron, the Star Chamber is honored to include Jarvie in the Star Chamber Gallery of Stars.
