By College Football America Yearbook
Three players from Butte College have been named to the 2019 College Football America Yearbook Junior College Preseason Starting Lineup, CFAY’s version of a preseason team. Altogether, 10 players from California Community College Athletic Association programs earned distinction on the list.
The team is comprised of players from the National Junior College Athletic Association and from the California Community College Athletic Association, the two major sponsors of junior college football.
Defending NJCAA champion East Mississippi placed one player on the team, LB Fred Hervey.
RB Deonta McMahon, OL T.J. Bass and OL Brenden Coffey should make Butte a formidable opponent in CCCAA football this season. Bass and Coffey are among the top sophomores in CCCAA, with Coffey and Bass weighing college options.
Hervey, among the Top 100 juco recruits in the country, has his eye on heading to Arkansas State next season, but not before trying to get the Lions back to the NJCAA title game.
Blinn, Copiah-Lincoln and Iowa Western also placed multiple players on the team.
There are 20 junior college programs represented on this year’s squad.
