A Proud day for College of the Canyons!

Two more former COC Cougar football players got drafted by NFL teams today !

Cornerback Justin Tryon from Arizona State University and Linebacker Joey LaRocque from Oregon State were drafted on the 2nd day of the NFL draft. Tryon was taken in the 4th round with the 125th pick to the Washington Redskins while LaRocque was taken in the 7th round with the the 243rd pick by the Chicago Bears. Both of these athletes were unbelievable workers for me and my conditioning programs during their 2 years with us @ COC, Congrats guys!

These two now join other COC Cougar football alums Domata Peko (Bengals), Jon Fanene (Bengals), Issac Sopoaga (49ers) , and JJ Arrington (Cardinals) in the NFL ranks!
