Butte College prepares for football season

OROVILLE, Calif. -- Despite a first round playoff loss last season, the Roadrunners are optimistic for what's to come this season. 

The team is coming off a 9-1 regular season that notched them that number one spot in the Nor-Cal League. 

Although 17 players from last year's team transferred to four-year universities, the Roadrunners say it won't affect their game and the new wave of talent looking to hit the field. 

Head Coach Robby Snelling returns for his 13th season and says he likes what he is seeing so far. 

"I think we have some good depth this year, so it's just creating good competition throughout camp and there's really good players back, but we also brought in a lot of good players so guys are getting pushed, no one's getting to comfortable, and so that's kind of a good thing for us," said Snelling. "I mean, we always want good comeptition, make each other better in practice and try to get us as game ready as we can."

"A lot of competition. Guys are putting their heart out on the field. Nobody's laying down and being a little whimp or nothing like that," said sophomore Cameron. "We're out here being strong and being athletic. We've got a lot of talent this year, so I'm excited to see how we can get things going."

Snelling says he has a few players on the sideline with injury, but is looking forward to having a healthy squad in the coming weeks. 

The Roadrunners will host a scrimmage Thrursday night at Chico High.
