Santa Monica College‘s football team has been sanctioned with a one-year postseason ban by the Southern California Football Association for a recruiting rule violation according to sources within the school’s athletic department.
The college was still on a self-imposed probation stemming from last year’s post game fight in the American Bowl against East Los Angeles College and the penalty was increased as the Corsairs were deemed a repeat violator. Their probation has been extended for an additional year until 2014.
It is the third time that SMC has been sanctioned in the last five years.
The 6’2, 279 lbs freshman from Fairfax High had 35 tackles, a fumble recovery and blocked field goal this year for the Corsairs.
Manley was named to the Region V All-California team by the California Community College Coaches Association and the JC Athletic Bureau earlier this week.
Santa Monica College finished 9-2 and won the Pacific Conference for the second straight year.
Below is the highlight video of Manley during his senior year at Fairfax High.
Santa Monica College men’s basketball game against Pasadena City College has been reschedule to Friday, November 30th at Corsair Pavilion, the college announced today.
The contest was originally to take place on November 24th but was postponed due to confusion of the start time, according to Santa Monica College athletic director Joe Cascio.
SMC is 2-2 on the year and Pasadena is 1-4.
Santa Monica College head coach Gifford Lindheim has been named the American Pacific Conference coach of the year. It is the second consecutive year that Lindheim has won the award.

One yard was the difference between happiness and disappointment. Glendale running back Collin Keoshian ran a dive up the middle, but was met by a platoon of Santa Monica College defenders before he could reach the first down marker.
After the measurement proved just short for the Vaqueros, SMC head coach Gifford Lindheim breathed a sigh of relief knowing that he and his team escaped with a 35-32 victory Saturday at Sartoris field.
For the first three quarters, it looked that Santa Monica College was destined for another frustrating defeat to San Bernardino Valley, but a 24-point surge in the fourth helped push the Corsair to a 45-34 victory in their final non-conference game on Saturday.
SMC quarterback Alfonso Medina threw for four touchdowns and Myles Johnson had 120 yards rushing to lead the comeback, yet it was two crucial fourth quarter interceptions by Aaron Rogers that kept the Corsairs ahead.
Santa Monica College football team will make its first appearance on television this year when they travel to face San Bernardino Valley College tonight.
The game will be broadcast starting at 6 p.m. on KVCR, the PBS station for the Inland Empire. For westside residents, The Dish Network, DirecTV, Verizon Fios, and AT&T U-verse have the channel as part of their basic package as it is a must carry for the Los Angeles market. KVCR is not available for Time Warner customers.
In nearly 20 years, men’s soccer returned to Corsair field Thursday afternoon. The Corsair’s opened their season with a victory over Santiago Canyon 3-1 behind the stellar play of Eric Fakhourian and that stingy defense.
The Corsair’s went into halftime tied 1-1. Freshman Samuel Medina scored nine minutes into the game to give them a 1-0 lead. Santiago Canyon responded scoring with 1:36 to tie the game at one left before the half.
Last season was a turning point for Santa Monica College. The Corsairs won their first American Pacific Conference title since 2003, but were stopped in the postseason by East L.A College losing 42-28 in the American Championship Bowl.
Despite the postseason loss, several players were voted to the All-Conference team and five were sent to 4-year universities. Even with those players leaving, the Corsairs return a group of guys that are hungrier for success.
An odd split schedule this week as Friday night lights start a day earlier for the LA City schools and the junior college finally get into the action. This week schedule is below.

Former All-City quarterback Torey Whitfield will be sitting out his sophomore year at West Los Angeles College due to a reoccurring injury.
“I tore my meniscus in my left knee again. [It’s] an injury from freshman year [at Hamilton], so I’m just resting it,” said Whitfield about the decision.
Whitfield threw for 620 yards and seven touchdowns backing up LeAndre Thompson in 2011. He was expected to switch to running back for the Wildcats this year.
