The SRJC Bear Cubs come in 12th in the pre-season polls

San Mateo – After winning a record seventh California Community College Athletic Association state football championship in 2015, City College of San Francisco is an overwhelming choice of coaches to repeat in 2016 — according to the annual preseason poll conducted by the JC Athletic Bureau.

The Rams capped a 12-1 season under rookie coach Jimmy Collins with a 26-14 win over visiting Saddleback College (10-3) of Mission Viejo in the 2015 title game. CCSF started 2015 as the No. 2 pick behind 2014 champ Mt. San Antonio, which is No. 6 in this year’s preseason rankings. Long Beach (10-2) is No. 2 this year, followed by Saddleback, Chabot (9-3), and Riverside (8-3). Saddleback was No. 25 among last year’s preseason picks.

September games will be devoted primarily to non-conference play — but there will be some interesting match-ups. They include early (Sept. 10) showdowns with Long Beach at Saddleback, Mt. SAC at No. 8 Ventura, and No. 17 Fullerton at No. 7 Cerritos. CCSF opens Sept. 2 at cross bay rival Laney. Contra Costa, moving up to the National (state championship division) this year debuts at Sequoias on Sept. 3. Other top openers that day include Butte at Santa Rosa, Fresno at Sierra, and San Mateo at Modesto.

Previous CCSF state championships came in: 1999, 2000, 2001, 2003, 2007, and 2011, all under now retired coach George Rush.
