Former Buff football stars helping Saddleback Junior College
Christensen, Jaca to play in bowl
Keller Christensen and Jake Jaca, two graduates of Madras High School, have helped the Saddleback Junior College football team qualify for a bowl game on Saturday.
Bids for the extra games were announced by the association governing junior college football in California.
Saddleback, located near San Diego, will battle College of the Canyons in the Dec. 1 Western State Bowl at Canyons.
Christensen and Jaca turned into defensive stalwarts over the course of the season but Christensen also played on offense in some of Saddleback's regular season games.
Both of the former White Buffalos are sophomores and will have to transfer to four-year colleges or universities if they want to keep playing football next fall.
