As far as JUCO programs go, Cerritos College has a long and rich tradition of success on the field and preparing players to transfer to four year schools. The past two seasons have produced back to back conference championships and bowl wins, and head coach Frank Mazzotta has served as head coach for over 34 years.
Mazzotta and the staff visited the staff at Michigan State last week to swap some ideas, and to check up on a former player of theirs that is now the starting offensive tackle for the Spartans. Dantonio and the staff in East Lansing complimented the Cerritos staff on how prepared the young man was from the moment he arrived on campus.
The clip below gives a great inside look at the program at Cerritos where you hear from players on exactly how the staff prepares them for life after they walk away from campus in Norwalk, California.
