Offensive coordinator Jeff Fischer told him it was his time to shine.

“I’m ready whenever you’re ready, coach,” Terrell Vaughn responded.

Taking the field for the first time in 21 months, Vaughn and the Ventura College football team showed they have not lost a step during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Vaughn had five catches for 105 yards and a touchdown as the No. 2-ranked Pirates topped host Moorpark College, 62-5, in the 53rd Citrus Cup game Saturday night at Griffin Stadium.

“It’s been too long,” Vaughn said. “It felt great to be back out here doing what I love.”

The returning All-American receiver from Oxnard took a short pass 79 yards for a touchdown to break open the game on the first play of the second quarter.

“I took it and saw the inside lane,” Vaughn said. “It felt great.”

Head coach Steve Mooshagian holds the Citrus Cup trophy as the Ventura College football team celebrates its 62-5 win over host Moorpark in Ventura County Community College's annual rivalry game on Saturday, Sept. 4, 2021, at Griffin Stadium.
