Grossmont College football has been a power in the state for most of the past 15 years. The Griffins have not had a losing season in a decade. Since the new playoff system was installed in 2003, Grossmont has won two Southern California championships, as well as a state and national title. They also have played in and won more playoff games than any other community college in the state.
Grossmont was placed in the toughest conference in California which had its inaugural year in ’08. Having lost two starting QBs and having a very young squad in ’08, they still managed to beat traditional “powers” Chaffey (51-16), Palomar (43- 3), Orange Coast (21-13), and Long Beach (33-7), as well as the champion of the Mountain Conference, Mesa (37-7). Three of Grossmont’s five losses were by a total of 13 points.
The real story of Grossmont College football, their legendary successes on the field and their tremendous record of sending young men to the university level is told in the following pages.
With key Division-I type players returning in ’09 and the positive responses we’ve received from recruits, the coaches here, most of whom have been around for years, feel it could be one of our best seasons.
Our goal is always a playoff birth which, as in ’03, ’04, ’05, and ’06, gave our players even more exposure and interest from university programs. University coaches follow the playoffs and spend more time with the stronger conferences, such as the one Grossmont is in. Getting players to the next level is what Grossmont is all about.
