Aaron Rodgers has often introduced himself to Monday Night Football audiences as having attended Butte Community College. This week, he gave a major shoutout — and a seven-figure gift — to his alma mater Cal.

The donation will fund locker room renovation and seed a scholarship fund for junior-college transfers like himself. The "Aaron Rodgers Football Locker Room" will be completed by fall, and the "Aaron Rodgers Football Scholarship" will be awarded annually, according to CBS Sports.

"We are thrilled and grateful that Aaron is making this important investment in the Cal football program," said head coach Justin Wilcox, who was the Bears' linebackers coach while Rodgers was at Cal. "Aaron's gift will help provide our student-athletes with a tremendous place to gather and prepare for all our football-related activities. It will also be great to show recruits visiting our campus a top-notch space and the level of support our program has from one of the greatest to ever play the game."
