Walla Walla Community College
Class of 2015
The Walla Walla Community College 1986 Football team recorded an impressive 9-0 season record and won the NWAACC Championship in doing so. During the NWAACC regular season the Warriors went 8-0, won the NWAACC Championship, and finished the season ranked number one in the nation in one of the major Junior College National Polls and no lower than third in two others.
Mike Levens served as the team’s Defensive Coordinator that year and the Warrior defense was ranked the top defensive team in the country – giving up a total of 223 rushing yards for the entire season. Also, no less than ten players on the Warrior defense that year were selected to the First Team All NWAACC Defensive Team. As a result of injuries during the 1986 season the Warriors used three quarterbacks during the campaign, but none of that made a difference as all three guys were able to step in and keep the offense rolling. The 1986 Warriors were invited to play in California for the Junior College National Championship but the game was cancelled as Walla Walla was not a member NJCAA school. Head Coach John Volek received numerous awards and last year was inducted into the National Alliance of Two Year College Athletic Administrator’s Hall of Fame.
