Edwin "Babe" Horrell was one of the great early football players of the Western region and excelled as a 5-sport athlete for PHS. He was an All-Southern California prep center for three straight seasons. In 1924 as a member of the University of California, he was chosen as just as just the second Walter Camp All-American ever from the Pacific Coast. Horrell later became head coach at UCLA, directing the Bruins to their first conference title in 1942. He coached fellow PCC Hall of Famer Jackie Robinson in 1939. Horrell was inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame in 1969 as a player.
Known as the "The World's Fastest Human," Charles "Charley" Paddock was a dominating figure in track and field sprinting. At the 1920 Olympic Games in Belgium, he won gold medals in the 100-meter dash and 4x100 relay while also earning the silver medal in the 200 meters. At the 1924 Olympics (Paris), he won the silver again in the 200. After attending PHS, Paddock ran track and field at USC.

Jackie Robinson was a 4-sport superstar for PJC, leading his teams to conference and or state titles in each sport. In football, he holds a PJC record that can never be broken for longest run from scrimmage, 99 yards, and he held records that were not broken until 2001 for most touchdowns and most points in a season. In track and field, he broke his own older brother Mack Robinson's national community college record for the longest broad jump at 25 feet, 6-1/2 inches. After attending UCLA, he broke Major League Baseball's modern day color barrier in 1947 as a member of the Brooklyn Dodgers. Robinson went on to a Hall of Fame career and is the only player in the game's history to have his number 42 retired by all teams in MLB.
