Santa Monica College offensive line coach David Banuelos was named the new head coach of Compton College football program, yesterday.
Banuelos has spent the last three seasons on the Corsairs sideline helping the team win back-to-back conference titles, an accomplishment not done in 30 previous years. One of his players, Moldova-born offensive tackle Alexandru Ceachir, earned a scholarship to UCLA in 2011.
This will not be the first time the St. Bernard alum has been in charge of a program. Banuelos had two stints as head coach at Pierce College in 1999-2000 and 2002-05. He has also been an offensive coordinator at LA Southwest, LA Valley and Santa Monica College.
The desire to lead his own team was too much for Banuelos to pass up.
Today’s Santa Monica College men’s basketball game versus Pasadena City College has been cancelled due to a scheduling error.
Tip-off was set for 5 p.m. at Corsair Pavilion but Pasadena believed that the game started at 1 p.m., leading to the contest being called off, according to SMC athletic director Joe Cascio.
The Corsairs (2-2) next game will be on December 7th against Grossmont College when they host the two-day SMC tournament.
In a year where Santa Monica College quarterback Alfonso Medina has been shattered school records in the pass happy “Air Corsair” offense, one would not expect to see a back piling up huge chucks of yardage on the ground.
Guess someone forgot to tell Myles Johnson that.
The former Carson High star has quietly been gaining yards and needs only 66 more in SMC’s final regular season game against Antelope Valley to become the first player in 12 years to reach the 1,000 yard mark.
Santa Monica College continue to be in a three-way tie for first place in the Pacific Conference and West LA College picks up its first league victory.

West Los Angeles College running back Stephen Cross and Santa Monica College punter Ret Tilman were honored as the Pacific Conference Players of the Week by the Southern California Football Association.
Cross earned the offensive nod after running for 138 yards along with 12 receptions for 108 yards in a 31-21 losing effort to SMC last week.
Tilman, a freshman from Culver City High, earned the Special Team/All-Purpose Player of the Week. It is the second time a Corsair has been honored on special teams as returner Ralph Gordon won the award in their victory over San Bernardino Valley.
The sophomore wide receiver from Westchester High had 187 all-purpose yards in last week’s 45-34 victory over San Bernardino Valley, including returning four kickoffs for 141 yards.
