On Friday April 28th I paid a visit to Butler High School, and they were hard at work getting ready for this upcoming season. Coach Brian Hales was working with a lot of young players on offense, installing base systems, play calls, and signals. Coach Hales told me he is in a great situation at Butler and greatly appreciates the consistent support he gets from the administration and fans.
Butler lost some great players to graduation from QB Davis Cheek to WR Kusegi Cureton on offense to LB Christian Dixon and DL Maurice McClain on defense, however they have some returning players that will play big roles and step into more leadership positions. I talked to Coach Hales about some of those kids, as well as spoke to a few players - RB Nijere Peoples, DB TJ Cusick, and WR Keyon Lesane. We also caught some footage of them hard at work during practice. Please enjoy this inside look at the Butler Bulldogs:
