Cerritos’ 2021 college football season ended after the Falcons finished in an overall record 6-5 after Cerritos beat San Diego Mesa in the Western State Bowl 32-14 in their final game on November 27. 2021.
Cerritos would end with a 3-2 record in their conference. The two heartbreaking losses ended in a game-winning goal for Palomar and Riverside in the dying seconds of the game.
This Falcons football team has proven to make no excuses, when they lost two or more possessions they have been one of the best to stay in football games no matter what.
On a heavily stacked defense made up of sophomore returns from the 2019 football season, the Falcons defense forced 12 interceptions, 12 fumble recoveries and 40 sacks.
This year’s Cerritos College football season has been one to remember, offensive struggles early in the season with a majority of freshmen on the offensive side of the ball saw the Falcons score over 30 points per game in their last five games this season.
Cerritos has averaged 27.3 points per game while scoring a total of 300 points this season.
Second-year No. 10 wide receiver Bailey Torres finished with 46 catches for 747 yards and six touchdowns.
With the returns coming back, this Cerritos attack will leave the defensive coordinators of the other teams struggling to find ways to slow them down.
Freshman quarterbacks, No.5 Jordan Simpson and No.11 Cade McConnell will be the double-barred quarterbacks for Cerritos.
Adjusting defensive starters will be Cerritos’ biggest concern as the 2022 football season approaches.
However, Cerritos is expected to find his rhythm early in this season under the guidance of head coach Dean Grosfeld and the coaching staff.
With a young and experienced team on the way, Cerritos should be ready to return to action just as they finished the season on a three-game winning streak.
This next footballing season is set to be just as exciting as it was in 2021.
