John Sanjuan enters his first season as an assistant coach for the Titans after serving as an undergraduate assistant during 2013. The former Titan has helped the program win back-to-back Big West Championships (2013 & 2014) as Fullerton is set to make its first NCAA Regional appearance since the program was reinstated for the 2009-10 campaign.
Over the last two years with Sanjuan as part of the coaching staff, the Titans have totaled six first-place finishes, including four during the 2013-14 season. In addition, Fullerton has produced one individual title, while the squad has received seven Big West All-Conference accolades, including senior Mark Anguiano being named Big West Golfer of the Year in 2014.
In 2013, the team finished the year ranked No. 72 in the country (Golf Stat), while Fullerton enters the NCAA Regional with a No. 57 rating.
Before beginning coaching duties for the Titans, Sanjuan spent three years (2010-12) as a student-athlete at CSF competing in 2010 and 2012, while using his redshirt year in 2011. He played in 16 tournaments, and during his senior year, had an average score of 76.46 with a total of 1,988 strokes over 26 rounds.
Prior to attending Cal State Fullerton, Sanjuan totaled two years of all-conference experience at the community college level, playing one season at Saddleback College and one at Cypress College. He was a three-time All-Garden Grove League MVP for Rancho Alamitos High School, graduating in 2007.
