SBVC hosts first-ever Bowl Game before dominating conference selections

San Bernardino Valley College hosted its first bowl game in known history, as the SBVC football team went to the American Championship Bowl for the second year in a row. Though the Wolverines lost to Chaffey College 33-20, record-setting quarterback Jeremy Moussa led the team in all-conference selections. Moussa was named Co-Offensive Player of the Year after appearing in four conference games, amassing 1,177 yards passing and 14 touchdowns. Overall, the freshman finished the season with the second-best single campaign in school history. Two Wolverines were honored twice by the all-conference selections.
