Joe Cesta came to Saddleback College looking for an identity. No matter how well he did in sports growing up, he was always following in the footsteps of his brothers, Tony and Mike. "People would always say, 'You're Mike Cesta's or Tony Cesta's little brother,' " Joe Cesta said. "I was never just Joe." Now, after two outstanding seasons at middle linebacker for Saddleback, Cesta has made a name for himself.
