More than two months after a high school athlete was shot, there are still no answers about his murder.

A youth organization is stepping in to fund billboards around Del Paso Heights to raise awareness about JJ Clavo and to find his killer.

Who took the Grant Union High School football player's life is still a mystery.

"For anybody that knew JJ and knows his mom, they're great people and deserve their justice," said Grant Union High School football coach Michael Alberghini.

A drug prevention organization is working to bring that justice to the family of the slain teen.

Sober Youth is fronting the $750 bill to place three billboards in Del Paso Heights on Auburn Boulevard, Del Paso Boulevard and Marysville Boulevard.

"The murder happened in broad daylight, so someone had to have seen something, someway, somehow." said William Stokes, executive board member of Sober Youth Inc.

The billboards will be up for at least four weeks.

The $40,000 reward and tip line are displayed across the brightly colored announcements. They are expected to be revealed within the next week. If their budget allows, Sober Youth hopes to add more billboards around the city.
