The Butte College Roadrunners defeated Fullerton College in Saturday's Junior College Football Championship Game at Butte College.
The game kicked off at noon Saturday. Butte College brought in extra seating to accommodate the huge crowd.
Butte College scored a 2nd quarter touchdown and led 6-0 at halftime. Butte led the game 14-7 at the end of the 3rd quarter.
The Roadrunners padded their lead in the 4th, and won the game by a final of 28-13.
After the game, coach Jeff Jordan talked about winning the state championship.
“I can't believe it,” said Jordan. “I'm just really proud of our program, our community, my assistant coaches and all the players. They've just been awesome all year. Just I can't believe that we're sitting here, another state championship. I mean, just little Butte College and it takes a lot of work from a lot of people and I'm just really proud of everyone's effort.”
Butte Quarterback Tommy Stuart was named the game’s Most Valuable Player.
“It's not about that,” said Stuart. “It's just about looking up at the scoreboard and having more points than the other team and that's what we did again today, 12 and 0, state champs. Can't say much more than that.”
“I don't know when it will sink in for me. It hasn't sunk in yet but in a couple of years I'll know that I was part of something special today. So that's good.”
It's Butte College's second state title in five years.
