Former Cal Poly wide receiver Dominique Johnson looks up to guys like NFL star Marques Colston. He has done what he wants to. Despite playing football at a school not surrounded by national spotlight — Hofstra University — Colston is now a starting wide receiver in the NFL.
A dream that was just simply a nightmare became a reality for the Cal Poly football team this weekend. After piecing together one of the best seasons in program history in 2008, Cal Poly was left out of the FCS Playoffs for the second-straight year Sunday morning.
With 35 seconds left in the game, Aggies quarterback Randy Wright connected with Sean Creadick on a five-yard touchdown strike, fueling the Aggies (5-5, 3-1 Great West) 22-21 win and marking UC Davis’ second-straight come from behind win against the Mustangs (7-4, 2-2) in as many years.
When fullback Jake Romanelli and the rest of the Cal Poly Mustangs (7-3, 2-1 Great West) began the season, they had two goals in mind.
Cal Poly head coach Tim Walsh teaches his players that there is more to life than just wins and losses on the football field.
In the ninth week of the season, the Mustangs are back to square one. The big question that surrounded the Mustangs coming into week one of this season has surfaced again.
North Dakota missed a 41-yard field goal with just over three minutes remaining and the Mustangs (5-3, 1-1 Great West) held on to defeat the Fighting Sioux (2-5, 0-3) 22-21 Saturday night in the team’s first game at Alex G. Spanos Stadium in over a month.
There is a certain image that stands out in Cal Poly quarterback Tony Smith’s memory.
After all the time he has been sitting on the bench, it looks like quarterback Andre Broadous will be the man who will help get back to the team they were two weeks ago.
Now — in college — after years of organized sports programs, Broadous finds himself in a position he is not used to — the bench.
Led by quarterback Tony Smith, the Mustangs rallied to a 23-17 win against Humboldt State Saturday night in Alex G. Spanos Stadium.
