College Football – Tradition of Greatness!
Grossmont's Rich Football Tradition
Grossmont College football has been a power in the state for
most of the past 15
years. The Griffins have not had a losing season in a decade.
Since the new playoff
system was installed in 2003, Grossmont has won two Southern

which had its
inaugural year in ‘08. Having lost two starting QBs and having a
very young squad

(51-16), Palomar (43-
3), Orange Coast (21-13), and Long Beach (33-7), as well as the
champion of the
Mountain Conference, Mesa (37-7). Three of Grossmont’s five
losses were by a
total of 13 points.

and spend more time with the stronger conferences, such as the
one Grossmont is in.
Getting players to the next level is what Grossmont is all
