Football returned to the Hilltop in 1999 after a 58-year hiatus brought about by the onset of World War II. The college's most recent standout was Michael Geary '05, a 2003 2nd Team All NE-10 offensive lineman. One of the college's greatest athletes was Ray "Scooter" McLean; he was coach of the Green Bay Packers in 1953 and 1958 and an NFL player for the Chicago Bears, winning NFL Championship Games in 1940, 1941, 1943 and 1946. The college's athletic teams are known as "The Hawks".
Saint Anselm is known by locals as a "hockey school" as both the men's and women's teams have earned championships in their respective conferences. The men's team has won 8 Northeast-10 Conference championships, (four in a row) most recently by defeating Franklin Pierce University in 2013. The Hawks performance in the 2012 Championship game set NE-10 records for most goals scored and largest margin of victory in a championship game. The women's team has earned the title of ECAC champions for two consecutive years, by defeating Holy Cross College. In the 2012-13 season, the women held a record of 19-4-4 including a victory over Norwich University ending their 40-game win streak and earning them 3rd place over all in the D-III ECAC East standings. The campus has a multimillion-dollar, 65,000 square feet (6,000 m2) ice arena, named after Thomas F. Sullivan. It is located next to Davison Dining Hall, and has a capacity of 2,700 fans.
