RAY HOLLEY (Men’s Football)

Ray Holley, a 5 feet 9, 190-pounder from El Modena High School, broke a 17-year school record by rushing for 1,457 yards and 18 touchdowns for the Pirates in 2009. With a bull’s-eye on his jersey for just about every offensive play, Holley used a relentless running style and racked up numbers that will stand in the OCC record books for some time to come. Holley’s 311 carries and 18 TDs were the most in California. Holley will continue his athletic and academic career at Louisiana Tech.

LIANA FUENTES (Women’s Track & Field)

Liana Fuentes continues to compete as she vies to win the state heptathlon title. Twice this year Fuentes has set OCC’s all-time point total in the heptathlon, most recently earning 4,949 points at the Southern California Regional Meet and earlier this year breaking Vanessa Denniston’s 1981 OCC record with a 4,469 score. Fuentes is ranked No. 1 in the state in the heptathlon, No. 6 in the 100-meter hurdles, No. 6 in the high jump and No. 3 in the javelin. She also runs for the Pirates’ 400- and 1,600-meter relay teams. Following her Coast career, Fuentes is hoping to attend Cal Poly San Luis Obispo.
