Butler Makes Playboy AA Again


For the second consecutive season, Georgia punter Drew Butler has been named to Playboy’s Preseason All-America Team.

Butler was one of only five players from the Southeastern Conference selected to the 27-man 2011 team.

A senior from Duluth, Butler won the 2009 Ray Guy Award for being the nation’s top punter and was a finalist for the award last season. He became only the seventh Dawg in school history to be named an All-American both athletically and academically after being named a 2010 ESPN Academic All-American.

Butler is on pace to become the career leader at UGA for punting average with a 46.1 mark through three seasons. In 2010, Butler averaged 44.5 yards on 50 punts, 15 that went for 50-plus. The son of former NFL standout and Dawg All-American Kevin Butler, he helped put the Dawgs at second in the SEC and fourth in the nation in net punting with an average of 40.6 last year.
