Butler, a Butte College Roadrunners team captain, led his team in scoring, steals and assists and was named to the GVC all-conference team. The Roadrunners finished second in the GVC at 7-3 and posted an overall record of 13-10. Butler is the son of Marnita Butler, who resides in Philadelphia, Penn. He has lived the past few years with his aunt and uncle, Helen and Ronald Shindell-Butler, in Tacoma, Wash. Butler plans to major in business administration at Montana Western.
