Annual Alumni SocialAnyone that has been around Arizona football over the last 40 years knows the success of the Glendale Gaucho Football program.
In efforts to honor the past players and coaches from GCC, the current coaching staff has started an annual social. Now in it's second year, former Gauchos gather at Aaron Franklin's restaurant, Ball Park Pizza in Peoria every Spring.
Here is a picture honoring the staff from Glendale's first ever bowl game appearance from 1982. (From L to R: Clem Ortega, Chuck Zontanos, Mark Belles, Earl McQuiston, Joe Kersting. Not pictured, the late Don Ulm, Paul Williams and Steve Daley).
It is crucial to the success of the program to keep former players and coaches involved. Any former Gauchos that would like to attend in the future, call Mickey Bell at 623-845-3785. We would love to see you there. Go Gauchos!!
