  • Former All-American quarterback Nathan Chandler (2000-01 Lancers) was inducted into the 2013 class of the PCC Sports Hall of Fame. PCC running back greats Jonathan Smith (2001) and Jerome Harrison (2002-03) were each inducted into the 2011 class of the Hall as well as 1966 Defensive MVP and Linebacker Curtis Seagrove.
  • Harrison distinguished himself in the pro ranks by recording the third highest single-game rushing total in NFL history with 286 yards for the Cleveland Browns in a late-season 2009 game v. Kansas City.
  • In 2013, defensive end Dalyou Pierson led the SCFA in sacks with 10.5 and was named to the All-California Region IV team.
  • PCC quarterback Justin Posthuma and wide receiver Jose Rodriguez hooked up for the longest pass play in school history--a 96-yard touchdown--in the 2011 season opener and Coach Fimbres' debut as Lancers head coach.
  • In 2011, Wayne Peters led all wide receivers in receptions in the state with 81 catches during the 10-game regular season.
  • In 2010, wide receiver David Reed became the first PCC player since Harrison in 2006 to be drafted into the NFL as a fifth round choice of the Baltimore Ravens. He picked up a Super Bowl ring as a special teams player in 2013 and is now a member of the Indianapolis Colts. Reed holds national community college records and PCC school records for most receptions and yards in a 10-game regular season.
  • In 2010, Dennis Gossard coached his 53rd victory and the long-time PCC faculty member retired as PCC's winningest head football coach. He coached as both an assistant and HC for a run of 31 seasons from 1979-2010.
