Growing up in the shadow of his famous father, legendary University of Georgia kicker Kevin Butler, it would be logical to assume that 2011 Wuerffel Trophy finalist Drew Butler began kicking a football at an early age.

That assumption would be incorrect.

Drew loved playing soccer. And his first love was golf.

His football career actually began when he saw a huge need for his high school team where he could be of immediate help. And it continued into a career that brought him First Team All-American honors two times, the 2009 Ray Guy Award for the nation's top punter and a 5-year career in the NFL.

We caught up with Drew recently and he filled us in on not only his football career, but also his passion for serving others and his life after football.

You can hear it on our podcast by listening below, on Soundcloud, or on multiple podcasting sites including iTunes, Google Play, Stitcher and TuneIn.


Why was the Wuerffel Trophy created?  We felt that there was a void in major college football awards. Mike Bianchi of the Orlando Sentinel put it best when he wrote, “The Wuerffel. It’s about time. There’s an award for the best quarterback, best running back, wide receiver, best linebacker, best center and even best kicker and punter. Why not one for the best human being?”
