Fresh face adds experience to coaching staff

California Baptist University named Brandon Seagondollar the assistant cheer coach this past August. Before CBU, Seagondollar served as an assistant coach at University of California, Santa Barbara, and head coach of the Pacific Coast Magic 5 Cities All-Star team.

Seagondollar was led to CBU by both his love for the cheer program and what the school stands for.

“I am originally from Southern California and have always been amazed with the CBU cheer program, especially at how far they have come over the past several years,” Seagondollar said. “It is a powerhouse program.”

Seagondollar began cheerleading during his seventh grade year after being involved in various sports.

“I was drawn to cheer by all the different aspects of it and how it incorporates all the elements of many other sports,” Seagondollar said.

As an athlete, Seagondollar thrived on the sport leading him to cheer collegiately at the University of Hawaii.

Throughout his athletic career, Seagondollar wanted to get more involved, leading him to pursue coaching.

“I have always seen myself as being a coach and something I have been driven to do my whole life,” Seagondollar said. “Cheer gave me something to focus my energy on, and gave me life-long friendships and family.”

As an individual, Seagondollar said cheer has helped him stay driven, motivated and positive throughout his life. He is considered to be a great addition to the coaching staff by the athletics’ department.

“We are happy to welcome Brandon to the Lancer family. He is a great fit here at CBU,” said Dr. Micah Parker, director of athletics, in a press release. “He will certainly help us honor Christ through excellence in athletics.”
