Pasadena City College acting head football coach James Kuk announced that the 2009 sophomore signing class grew this month with commitments made by cornerback Taurus D'Antignac and quarterback Jonathan Troast. 

D'Antignac, a two-year starter and All-National Northern Conference Second Team selection, accepted a scholarship with McPherson College, a NAIA school in Kansas. D'Antignac led the Lancers in interceptions with five this past season. He was a member of the 2008 Tremblay Services Bowl championship squad. He made 44 tackles as a sophomore and returned 10 punts for an 11.6 yards average. D'Antignac is a product of Fairfax High in Los Angeles.

Troast, a two-year letterman as a PCC signal caller, signed with Prairie View University, Texas. He finished his Lancers career by completing 86 of 172 passes for 1,228 yards and 12 touchdowns as a part-time starter in 2008 and 2009. Troast's best game at PCC was as a freshman when he passed for 287 yards and a pair of touchdowns in a win over East Los Angeles. Troast came to PCC from South Pasadena High.

The signings of Troast and D'Antignac increases the 2009 class to eight players earning scholarships at 4-year universities. Kuk said a few more players are considering scholarship offers. (Editor's Note--Check this website for updates).

Montana Returns To Notre Dame

Nate Montana, son of NFL Hall of Famer Joe Montana, returned to Notre Dame University (Indiana) after gaining his first intercollegiate experience on the '09 Lancers team. Montana is a walk-on at Notre Dame, but is battling for a spot for the 2010 Irish after throwing for 223 yards and three touchdowns in the program's intrasquad scrimmage played in April. At PCC, Montana appeared in five games, passing for 324 yards and two touchdowns.
