The Cardinal Countdown...44 days till kickoff

#44 B.J. Butler

6951823_medium

Class: Junior Ht/Wt: 6-2/268 Position: Defensive End Hometown: Kissimmee, Fla

Louisville’s Take: Great athlete who saw his production slip after suffering an injury early in fall practice... needs to continue to get bigger and stronger... must become a bigger part of the defense... gives the coaching staff flexibility on where to play him along the defensive line

Thoughts: B.J. has been a guy battling through injuries the last year or so, but continues to produce when on the field. B.J. was the type of guy we were missing through the Kragthorpe era. A hard-nosed Mack truck who isn’t afraid to pound the ever loving crap out of somebody when the time is right. Four tackles against the pussy cats in Lexington last year was a good sign in his first start of the season, and he continued to be a factor when he could stay healthy. I’ll be looking for BJ somewhere on the line very early this season, most likely in his more natural position at Defensive End. With Savoy gone I’ll also look for Butler to improve upon his 15 total tackles from last year as well. Five or six of those on September 2nd wouldn’t hurt my feelings one bit.

Let’s remember, this is a kid who had some discipline issues coming into the program, even being suspended by his own coach back in high school. He has turned into a standup man on and off the field, something to be proud of. We love Charlie for a multitude of reasons, but molding these kids into fine young men should be high on the list.

Potential Nicknames: "The Butler" (He cleans up the mess)
