Chico Calif.-- All season, the Pleasant Valley High basketball teams have been preparing for this Saturday, when both the boys and girls will compete for the state title in Sacramento.

They'll have a chance to play at the Golden 1 Center, the home of the Sacramento Kings, and Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers is helping the teams get there.

The last time the girls made it to states was 1985, and the boys have never been there.

Aaron Rodgers is an alumnus of PV High. He heard the teams were in the championship and reached out to the school to see how he could help.

So, he ended up paying for the boys’ and girls’ dinners, the girls’ hotel rooms, as well as for two busses for students to go and support the school.

“I never had him as a student, but, you know, he's just a class act. We put a quote in there somewhere that says ‘sports doesn't build character, it reveals it.” Someone of that stature coming to PV and doing this for the boys’ and girls’ programs is just unbelievable,” said girls basketball coach Bob Paddock.

“I still can't believe we're going to Golden 1. Spring break, everyone is on vacation, but no we're here practicing and preparing for what's to come Saturday,” said senior and team captain Sirena Tuitele.

The girls will play at 2:00 pm Saturday, and the boys right after them at 4:00 pm.

Rogers would have paid for the boys rooms as well, buut they decided to leave Saturday morning instead.

Thursday was the last fairly quiet weather day that we'll have in northern California as a series of storms will move our way through next week. Our first chance for rain and snow showers arrives Friday morning with a cold front.
