Jim Schwartz, El Camino College dean of physical education and athletics, has announced plans to seek sponsors for a post-season bowl game in 1988 that will invite at least one South Bay community college football team to participate.
Schwartz made the announcement in response to a story in the Thursday edition of The Times that speculated that El Camino College could win the South Coast Conference title, yet not receive a post-season bowl bid.
"El Camino must look at the possibility of forming a South Bay Bowl for community colleges," Schwartz said. "I plan to pursue it."
Presumably the game would be held at El Camino's Murdock Field.
"The South Bay community will be very supportive of this," he said. "And it will give (South Bay teams) an opportunity to play in a bowl game more frequently."
