Startling linebacker Norman Massey has been chosen as the Butler Community College Athlete of the Month. Massey, who went to Wichita East, recorded 15 tackles and two sacks last season for the Grizzlies.
“It (Butler football) has been treating me well,” Massey said. “We have a high standard at Butler. We have to meet and our coaches push us to meet the standard, that’s what makes me and my team better. Also, the championships butler has won in the past pushes to get better every day and keep Butler’s winning tradition going.”
Massey said that he would encourage any prospective recruit to seriously consider going to Butler.
“I would recommend a prospect to go to Butler,” Massey said. “The coaching staff gets you ready for the next level and the coaches push you to get better on and off the field.”
Not only has Massey enjoyed his experience playing football for the Grizzlies, but the educational aspect has been rewarding as well.
“My experience at Butler has been good, the education is good and teachers look out for you and are willing to help you and teach the best way possible,” Massey said. “If you are having trouble with classes they have tutoring on campus and online. It’s like a university.”
