The 2014 season brings a new and exciting change to the Mesa College Football program. Under the leadership of newly appointed Head Coach Thad Porlas, a Madison High School alum, the buzz around town is a positive one as the Olympians kick off their season.
Coach Porlas heralds a comprehensive and impressive coaching background. He is known throughout San Diego as an intelligent and seasoned coach. His coaching experiences dates back to 1991 with 6 years at Point Loma High School under the tutelage of the legendary, Bennie Edens.
Some of his many notable positions include the University of San Diego, where his quarterback at the time was 2 times ranked #1 QB in NCAA Division 1 FCS in pass efficiency; San Diego Riptide (Arena Football League); Cathedral Catholic High School which went on to win the California State Championship. Since 2010, he has been an Associate Head Coach and Offensive Coordinator with the San Diego Enforcers (National Public Safety Football League) which holds the coveted distinction of being enshrined into the San Diego Hall of Champions.
Porlas has been an assistant coach with Mesa College since 2009 and was a natural fit to the head coach position. He is looking forward to the start of the season with their first game Sept. 6th at home against L.A. Valley College, 6:00pm.
Come support the local community, players and coaches and enjoy a night of hard hitting football.
