In the wide landscape of college football in California, perhaps the state's biggest hidden gem is the program at San Diego. Playing in the non-scholarship Pioneer Football League in FCS, the Toreros have enjoyed eight winning seasons since 2001 while winning or sharing five PFL titles over that span. On top of that, the prorgram's last two head coaches are Jim Harbaugh and newly-hired San Jose State head coach Ron Caragher.
That tradition of winning, plus a top-flight education (ranked among the top 100 American universities by U.S. News & World Report) with a location inside one of America's best cities, give the Toreros a lot to offer. But how does the program pique the interest of a recruit that doesn't know about any of that? Enter this video, created by USD alum Tim Lynch.
If you're a high-schooler being recruited by San Diego, I don't know how you could not want to know more about the program after watching this video. Honestly, if the Oscars created a "Best Football Hype Video - Short" category, this would have to be a nominee. It's that good.
