The Ventura College football team had four players sign scholarship letters on National Signing Day in a small ceremony at the Athletic Event Center Wednesday morning. Head coach Steve Mooshagian expects more Pirates to sign in the coming days as the signing period moves through its course. Mooshagian also updated VC's mid-year transfers up to six, bringing the 3-Peat Northern Conference champions' transfer total to 10 for the year at this early stage.

For the 2017-18 transfer year, VC now has 10 signees, bringing coach Mooshagian's total to 171 student athletes who have moved on from the Pirate football program in the past eight years.
