COACHES CORNER… PASADENA CITY COLLEGE

JAGS FALL TO PASADENA IN FINAL 21 SECONDS, 38-34.

DEFENSE: SERGIO AYON (Otay Ranch HS) made a ton of plays in the Lancer back field.  Defensively we stopped the run but gave up a handful of critical catches by PCC late in the game.  Numerous occasions our offense put our defense in tough field positions but the JAGS defense stepped up to the task.

SPECIAL TEAMS:  Sophomore RB/Slot ADRIAN PETTY (Christian HS) ran another punt back for a TD for a total of 5 on the year.  Freshman kicker ALEX NIXON (Valley HS, San Diego) had two field goals and Punter DEAN SMITH (Eastlake HS) punted 5 big punts on the night.
