"We had our first game," Detroit (Mich.) Renaissance defensive end Carson Butler said. "We won 50-0. We beat Detroit Southwestern. I played wide receiver and outside linebacker. I only played the first half. I had a 40 yard touchdown and a sack."
The 6-foot-6 and 235 pound Butler did not play football for Renaissance his junior year due to transfer rules. Butler rushed for over 700 yards and six touchdowns during his sophomore season at Lansing Waverly.
Back on the field this season, expect attention from college football recruiters to continue to rise for Butler.
"I'm looking at Michigan, Michigan State, Wisconsin, and Purdue," Butler said. "Those are the main ones. None of them have offered yet. They haven't seen me play since my sophomore year. They want to see me play this year."
"I'm thinking about going to the Michigan-Miami of Ohio game this weekend. Michigan would probably be my number one school right now, but I'm really interested in what the others have to offer. We'll see what happens when we send out tapes of the first two games."
