A kicker for the junior college national champions will be joining the Warriors.
Edgar Castaneda of City College of San Francisco said he has accepted an invitation from the Warriors. He arrives this summer and will have two years of eligibility.
Castaneda, who is 5 feet 7 and 165 pounds, was the second-most productive kicker in California JC football the past regular season, averaging 8.6 points per game. He was 11th among all California JC players.
The Rams went 11-0 in the regular season and defeated Mount San Antonio in the state championship game. California has the majority of JC football programs. The winner of the state title is considered to be a national champion.
Castaneda was named to the California state Region I first team, and the NorCal Conference's first team.
He said his girlfriend lives in Hawaii.
Castaneda said he became interested in kicking after watching his older brother play in high school. Without any football-kicking experience, he made the Alameda High's freshman team. He also is an accomplished soccer player.
"I can't wait," Castaneda said of joining the Warriors.
