he would put the run in run and shoot. he's what the o-line needs, opportunities to go downhill with their blocking knowing vaughn is going to burst right by them.

6:22 in the video. who builds sideline seating and stops at the 50 yard line?

Vaughn is a much needed power back with some vision and breakaway ability. The coaches are high on him. Need him to sign on the 20th. I think he's a mid-year transfer which is a big plus.

I wonder if this is the staff expecting them to lose DeVon Rice. Rice has received some new offers of late by power 5 schools.

From his tape he doesn’t appear to be a power back. Doesn’t hit the hole very hard

He seems hard to tackle.

Hoping that CV will be somewhat comparable to another former UH RB also from Butte College....

bigger back, strong runner, great vision and lateral movement, hard to bring down. If he can catch that would be a big plus.

Warriors hit their target with Butte College running back
By Stephen Tsa

Butte College running back Christian Vaughn went from having “Target” on the front of his shirt to having a target on the back of his jersey as one of junior college’s most prolific rushers.

Vaughn’s next goal is to make a mark in Manoa. Vaughn, who recently accepted a scholarship offer from the Hawaii football team, will make his commitment official when he signs a letter of intent on Dec. 20, the first day football prospects may put their pledges in writing.

“I like Hawaii’s whole family vibe,” Vaughn said of his decision to become a Rainbow Warrior. “It had me very excited that I will be amongst people who want the same thing. They want to win and they want to do it together. That’s something I kind of struggled throughout these years of football. To have it now, at a high level, makes me really excited.”

Vaughn was a standout rusher at Desert Oasis High in Las Vegas, gaining more than 1,600 yards as a senior in 2019. But then the pandemic hit. “I felt everything in the world stopped, including all the football things,” he said. “I was very confused in what to do. I started working at Target to stay productive. I took a gap year.”

He then received a call from one of his high school coaches. “He was like, ‘you’re working at Target?’ You still have talent. What are you doing?’” Vaughn recalled.

The coach then helped Vaughn reach out to several junior colleges. Butte offered Vaughn an opportunity to join in 2021.

“First year I was there, there were 15 running backs,” Vaughn said. “COVID backed everything up. I had to redshirt. I was fine with that due to the circumstances.”

In 2022, Vaughn was the backup to Caleb Ramseur, who rushed for 744 yards. Vaughn gained 350 yards, an average of 4.9 yards per carry. Ramseur “was good, and I didn’t get to play as much as I really wanted to,” Vaughn said. “Everybody told me to be patient, that my time was coming. I stayed patient.”

In addition to the team’s usual workouts, Vaughn created a routine that included sets of 30 crunches, 88 pushups without a break, and agility drills. In 11 games this season, Vaughn rushed for 1,456 yards (7.0 per carry) and 18 touchdowns.

At 5-11 and 220 pounds, Vaughn relies on speed (4.5 seconds over 40 yards) and power (370-pound bench press). “My thing is, I always have to make the first (defender) miss,” Vaughn said. “The second one, I either have to go through him or make him miss, also. … Either I juke or I force situational stuff. If I need 2 yards for the first down, I’m lowering my shoulder and getting it.”

Vaughn will join a position group that includes Tylan Hines, Landon Sims, David Cordero, Derek Boyd, Eddie Osei-Nketia, Tasi Tadio, and Kamalu DeBlake.
