Before his big break: an interview with the college coach that helped Aaron Rodgers get discovered

Before he was a Division I star at the University of California and eventually a Super Bowl champion with the Packers, Aaron Rodgers started his playing days at Pleasant Valley High School in Chico, California. He only got one D-I opportunity to walk on at Illinois, but decided instead to play football at Butte College, a short distance from his hometown. Craig Rigsbee was Aaron's coach there, and he talked with CBS 58's Kevin Holden about Rodgers' impact on the community and what is was like to work with #12 before he made it to the big time.
