Butler has committed to play for Kennesaw State next year as an Owl. ¨Baseball has opened many doors for me,¨ said Butler. ¨It helped me get to college where I will be playing the sport I love while attending school too.¨

Butler hopes to improve his overall game in his last season as a McIntosh Chief. He also hopes that the team will continue to play to the best of their ability to win state this year.

Butler will most miss all of the memories he has accumulated over the past four years playing as a Chief.
