The Asheville (N.C.) cornerback and quarterback had to make a move to tailback briefly when teammate Johnny White went down with cramps in the third quarter.
"Crezdon was the glue holding it all together when everything else was falling apart around him," said head coach Dan Wilkins. "We had some skill people that were down with cramps and other injuries, and when you have a thin squad to begin with it is frustrating at times."
"We could have scored a little more, I am just happy to have a win," added Butler. "Johnny (White) had a big run, we scored a touchdown after that. It was ugly, but we won."
Having played running back as a sophomore, Butler moved to quarterback last year when Wilkins lost his quarterback to graduation and he needed to find someone that was electric with the football in his hands on every play. Butler was happy with the move to become a signal-caller, but he knew he could move back to his original position at any point.
"I knew that if he cramped up, I was going to have to step up and play tailback. It just brought me back to when I was a running back, and my mindset is that I am a running back," he said.
"We have to do better, we will be better next week and the week after that."
Butler, a Clemson commitment, is happy that he can focus on a very tough schedule after announcing his college choice.
"I'm excited, I am going to stick with that commitment, and I am going to be a Clemson Tiger. I am not recruiting anybody right now, but I am going to do that after the season though. I am probably going down September 3rd..."
