Gaucho Alumni

Saddleback Football has a rich tradition of excellence. Through the first 45 years the Gaucho teams have averaged 7.7 wins and 3.0 losses per season. Four-year college recruiters understand that players who have achieved success at the community college level have a better chance of achieving success at the four-year level. Several Gaucho players move on to attend four-year colleges and universities each season and, after that, some get an opportunity to fulfill that lifelong dream of playing professionial football.
