SMC football program has two more players going to D1

After an undefeated season for the Santa Monica College football team, two of the team's defensive starters have committed to NCAA Division One football programs this last week. Linebacker, Anthony Gutierrez, and defensive tackle, Daniel McGhie both decided to continue their collegiate football careers next year at top tier programs.

Outside linebacker, Anthony Gutierrez, shined for the the Corsairs' defense this last season. A "bounce back" transfer from South Dakota State, he impressed enough to earn a scholarship offer from University of Nevada, Las Vegas. The 20 year old, 6'2, 225 pound linebacker, should flourish at UNLV especially due to his elite speed, posting a 4.5 second 40 yard dash.

Defensive tackle, Daniel McGhie, consistently dominated the interior line by clogging up holes. McGhie committed to Alabama State this last week. He will look to continue causing mayhem for opposing offenses by filling running lanes with his 6'3, 305 pound frame while using his above average athletic ability in pursuits.

The Corsair football team now has three players, the first being quarterback Troy Williams, officially committed to continuing their collegiate football career at higher level programs. There are several players still waiting for their first offer and some that are looking for better offers. One thing for certain is that there will be many more commits coming in the near future for the SMC football team.
