Nathan Chandler set PCC school records at quarterback on the Lancers’ 2001 Mission Conference champion team. Chandler made up half of the only First Team All-American backfield selected from one college in the history of the JC Grid-Wire with running back Jonathan Smith (a member of the 2011 PCC Hall class), Chandler used his 6-foot-4 size to pass for then Lancer single-season records for most passing yards, 2,633, most touchdowns, 29, and highest completion percentage, .648.  He threw a PCC record six TDs in a victory over Long Beach.  He was the signal caller on the highest scoring PCC football team ever—465 points in 11 games for a staggering 42.3 points average. Chandler also was part of an incredible streak between 2000 and 2001 when the Lancers scored touchdowns in 40 consecutive quarters. He led the team to a victory over Grossmont in the South County Bowl. Chandler earned a scholarship to the University of Iowa and was the team’s starting quarterback in 2003. Chandler’s younger brother, Scott Chandler, played tight end in the NFL for nine seasons, and their father Bryan played at PCC in 1973.
