Pirate Football Announces 13 Signees in Class of 2018

Ventura College football and head coach Steve Mooshagian has announced that 13 players from the 2018 Southern California Football Association champions have inked scholarships or committed to play at four-year schools.  

Among the mid-year transfers, early signees, and signing period commits, Nine have inked with NCAA Division I schools, six playing in the Football Bowl Series with three in the Football Championship series, and four will transfer to NCAA Division II schools.

The 13 transfers from the 2018 team helped the Pirates win their fourth straight Northern Conference crown  in 2017 and led VC to the SCFA championship and into the CCCAA state title game this past season. 

With the addition of these transfers, coach Mooshagian has now helped 218 student athletes move on to the four-year level in his nine years at the helm of the Pirates' ship. He anticipates at least 10 additional signees in the coming weeks.
