2006: Crezdon Butler

Crezdon Butler made a name for himself as a sophomore running back, putting up big numbers at the position while splitting time with Asheville (N.C.) teammate Johnny White. However with a senior quarterback graduating, head coach Danny Wilkins asked Butler if he could become the new signal caller.

"He is such a great kid, the only question he asked was if he could wear the No. 5," said White, who granted the request and found a star at the position.

As a junior, Butler flourished at the position by passing for 764 yards, and adding another 1,445 yards on the ground for a total of 16 touchdowns on offense.

However, Butler's future is on the defensive side of the ball, and he is very happy to make that move at the college level as well.

At 6-foot-1, 175 pounds, and with great acceleration, colleges are already starting to invite Butler to visit their campuses, and several are close to offering.

"I almost was offered by Wake Forest on Saturday. They said they are going to look at a few more tapes and they'll see about it.

"Wake Forest, North Carolina, North Carolina State, Georgia are on the top of the list, and Tennessee," added Butler, who plans on camping at Wake Forest, Tennessee, and Georgia. "I'm looking at academics and if I can come in early and help the team. I want to play corner or receiver, but I am probably better at cover corner."
