They are remembered in the town of Santiago de Querétaro to be the first city team to play in the Primera Division. In the late 1970s, Armando Presa purchased Estudiantes de Queretaro from the Segunda Division de Mexico, and renamed them to Atletas Campesinos.
In June 22, 1980 by the management of Antonio Carbajal and Antonio Ascencio, the team achieved promotion to Primera Division after defeating Osos Grises of Toluca in the final, by a score of 2–1 as a visitor in the Estadio Nemesio Díez, after a tie in Estadio Municipal de Querétaro.
The team played two seasons, spent the 1980–81 season with more pain than glory and in the 81–82 season, with reinforcements, a better season was achieved, but without reaching playoffs. For the 1982–83 season, the team was sold to the STPRM (Sindicato de Petróleos Mexicanos / Union of Petroleum Mexicans) and taken to the city of Tampico, with the nickname La Jaiba Brava. Its leading figure was Leonardo Cuellar. The current successor of that team is the Querétaro.
The original team shirt showed a tractor but the Mexican Football Federation accused the directors of display advertising on the shirt since back then it was forbidden but the tractor did not show or promote any brand tractors in particular. The Federation, began to mistreat the team, one of the reasons why it was sold.
Team was reformed and began operation in the Tercera División de México on June 25, 2011 having the memorable presence of Antonio Carbajal who as coach helped get the team promoted in the late 70's and early 80's. They played in Group IX of the Central Region.
At the end of 2012 there were administrative problems and the club that had been refurbished disappeared again, becoming the franchise Cobras de Querétaro.
