Chico State Wildcat Football Reunion 2022

Chico State Football Reunion Returns!

After not getting together for a couple of years (due to the Covid-19 outbreak), the men who once played football at Chico State return. This years reunion did not disappoint any Wildcat that was able to attend. The much anticipated “40 yard dash” time trials were the most entertaining but also motivational for those looking to participate next year.

It was an honor to have former Coaches Dick Trimmer, Gary Houser and Mike Bellotti in attendance this year. Players from the 60s thru the 90s gathered to rekindle friendships, share memories, meet a fellow Wildcat that either played years later or were a part of the legacy they had often heard about. The final football season at Chico State was in 1997 and we are very motivated to get more of those Wildcats to attend and share their story!

New Chico State Weight Room

The Reunion for 2023 is currently being scheduled for the 14th and 15th of July. We look forward to seeing even more Wildcats in attendance. We will have our Golf tournament and close with the banquet. Proceeds from the golf tournament, banquet and raffles with go towards the Wildcat Scholarship Fund established for the Football family.

Chico State Football Reunion 2017


The Chico State Football Reunion for 2017 was held the weekend of July 20th and was a huge success. Wildcat John Zgomic, from the class of 85, was in attendance. John was a 4 year football player and wrestler and was inducted into Chico State Hall of Fame his first year being eligible. So many other Wildcats were in attendance catching up on fond memories during the walk from the Oasis to the football field and the tour of the weight room and locker room.  The Wildcats scoreboard was purchased by wildcat Rob Shiner and later donated; however, it was in attendance for several photo ops.

This year was also highlighted by the additional exposure from the Chico State media, the Enterprise Record and local tv news.  It was also announced that the Wildcats will be starting a scholarship fund to assist family members of former players.

The target dates for 2018 are July 19, 20 and 21….Hope to see you there.
