Dual quarterbacks at Pierce College has been a success thus far this season. Exavier Johnson and Clinton Granger have shared duties as signal callers with little to no complaints. The two just go out and do their job whenever their number is called. This is unprecedented. The majority of the time this does not work. Every team has their own way of dealing with this kind of situation, usually resulting with one guy edging out the other and taking control. Obviously this has not happened here as both remain equals in the eyes of the coaches and more importantly, their teammates.
On Saturday the Pierce team traveled to Moorpark College's Griffin stadium, to take on the host Moorpark College Raiders. It would prove to be a successful night as Pierce would get their first win over the Raiders in 25 to 30 years according to third-year Pierce coach Efrain Martinez.
Reggie Smith Jr., son of former MLB player Reggie Smith, has turned a new chapter in his life by accepting the defensive coordinating job for the Pierce College football team. He came to us after coaching at Chaminade High School in West Hills for the past five years.
It was a clear cool evening Saturday at Shepard Stadium, but apparently a hot and hazy one on the field for the Brahmas, facing the College of the Canyon's Cougars with a 53-17 loss. Unfortunately, a key mistake in the game was the Brahmas defense, ranked 13 in rushing defense in the Western State Conference, which allowed Canyon's Cougars offensive team, ranked number two in the WSC, earn the win.
Pierce College's football team was once again defeated in the hands of an undefeated Glendale Community College squad. The Vaqueros ran wild on the Brahmas defense, or lack there of, ending in a 3-28 loss. Pierce displayed no signs of awakening from both sides of the football Saturday night.
