BUTTE COUNTY -- Butte College’s Cliff Jackson, Salomon Navarro and Cameron Alfaro have all committed to plat at a university this fall.

“The experiences I had here are unforgettable and it just really made me into the man I am now and prepared me for this kind of moment,” said Jackson.

Jackson will head to Midwestern State University as a corner and Alfaro will head to Colorado Mesa University as a free safety. Both attended Chico High.

“I’ve been dreaming of this since I was a little kid,” said Alfaro. “Now that it’s finally here it seems so surreal and I can’t believe I actually did this.”

Pleasant Valley alum Navarro will go to San Jose State as a tight end.

“Football means so much to me, it has done so much for me and it has taught so much throughout the years,” said Navarro. “I’ve been at it since 8-years-old. It’s taught me how to work for what I want.”

All Roadrunners say Butte College and the football staff helped them fulfill their dreams.

“[Junior College] sports just gives kids another opportunity and another chance to fulfill their dreams and carry on what they love,” said Alfaro.

Butte College has yet to make a decision on whether to resume athletics this season due to COVID-19 and safety concerns.

“I’m very excited to take this next step and compete for the starting spot, to meet all my teammates, and everything like that. I want to do what I did here at Butte and take it into my next season of life,” said Navarro.

The former Roadrunners are set to leave by next month.
