EL CAJON (9-21-14) — Grossmont College freshman defensive lineman De’SHAWN TONE was basically bouncing off the wall in the Griffins’ locker room after the Griffins registered a stunning 38-28 upset victory over No. 1 state-ranked Riverside City College on Saturday (Sept. 20) at Mashin-Roth Field.

No doubt this victory was Grossmont’s biggest since capturing the state championship in 2005.
“I guess we’ve had bigger victories, but this one has to rank at the top of the list,” said Grossmont head coach MIKE JORDAN.

The words “rebuilding” and “young” are routinely dealt by coaches fielding a basically freshman team. This Grossmont unit is the same.

The Griffins proved their youth in a 35-6 loss to Southwestern in the opener, however, the Griffins have rebounded swiftly, topping Pasadena 17-14 the following week and overpowering Riverside in the latest contest.

The Griffins jumped on top of the Riverside Tigers 31-14 in the first half, using a balanced attack to take that advantage as freshman quarterback MICHAEL CARRILLO, a Christian High graduate, completed 16 of 33 passes for 237 yards and 3 touchdowns.

Hard-nosed running back THOMAS McDONALD out of West Palm Beach, Fla. barged for 87 yards rushing on 11 carries and caught 4 passes for 82 yards for 169 total offense yards.

EL CAJON (9-14-14) — Grossmont College freshman quarterback MICHAEL CARRILLO isn’t the tallest guy on the field but the 5-11, 180-pound signal caller still makes an impact.

GRIFFINS 17, LANCERS 14
Carrillo completed 15 of 25 passes for 176 yards and one touchdown as Grossmont defeated visiting Pasadena City College 17-14 on Saturday (Sept. 13) at Mashin-Roth Field.

“I don’t really think about my size,” Carrillo said. “I just try to deliver the ball to my receivers.”

The Christian High graduate led the Patriots to the San Diego Section Division IV championships a year ago. His first touchdown pass of the season was a 9-yard strike to former Patriots teammate, PARIS MILLER, giving Grossmont a 7-0 lead over the Lancers.

“My ultimate goal is to play Division I football, and I believe with the help of God I’ll be able to do that,” Carrillo said

CHULA VISTA (9-7-14) — Grossmont College kicked off the season and all but fell on its face in Saturday’s (Sept. 6) 35-6 loss to Southwestern College as the Jaguars christened their refurbished Chet DeVore Stadium.

This game was a blowout as Grossmont did not score until the final two minutes of the contest when JEFFERY STEPHENS scored on a 2-yard plunge.

“We played a pretty sound defensive game,” said Southwestern coach ED CARBERRY.

“Grossmont, on the other hand, had only two players returning,” Griffins coach MIKE JORDAN said.

The difference between the two teams’ experience was obvious.
