DUNCANVILLE HEAD COACH JEFF DICUS "Let me tell you, Vanderbilt has a jewel in Adam Butler. You're talking about a very special, great character kid who brings a lot to the football field.
"Adam is just a leader and has meant a great deal to helping turn our program around. On the field, Adam's an aggressive player, an agile guy who can move around. For his size, Adam's also a good knee-bender.
Adam still has room to grow and develop. He's going to be a 310-315 pounder after a year or so in the (Commodore) program. I look for him to do special things at Vanderbilt."
