Learn about GRCC sports history in ‘Open Door’

Did you know that legendary head GRJC football coach Gordon Hunsberger began his college coaching career by taking his team to the Los Angeles Coliseum for the first-ever National Junior College Championship game? Though team members had their money and valuables stolen during a practice session and GRJC lost the championship game, the event put the college football team on the national radar. Many more bowl games would follow for Hunsberger’s teams and those that came after him.

Read about this and much more in Open Door, the newly published 100-year history of GRJC/GRCC written by retired English professor Walter Lockwood. The book can be purchased at the GRCC Library or online here.
