LOMPOC, Calif. - AJ Pateras comes to Cabrillo from a terrific football program at Ventura High School.
It will take some effort and time but the Conquistadores are hoping to turn around their program that has struggled for the past five years.
Pateras will make his head coaching debut on Friday, August 25 when Cabrillo hosts Frontier of Bakersfield.
The Ventura-alum Pateras will have a young team to work with as the varsity team has just ten seniors.
Pateras was a former defensive coordinator but has fresh ideas on offense and says the Conquistadores will pass more than they have in the past.
