Walter "Buck" Butler '72

Football, Soccer, Track


Buck received varsity letters in all three sports. During his football career at Saint Andrew’s, Buck seldom came off the field during games. He played running back on offense and defensive back on defense. On special teams he was the kick-off man and punter. He held the record for many years for the longest kick-off return. Coach Jim Davis recognized Buck’s skill and talent and utilized his speed and aggressive style during crucial downs. Often he was called upon to play defensive end on third downs to disrupt passing plays. Following his senior season, Buck received a full four-year football scholarship to Florida State University as one of their top recruited defensive backs.


After college, Buck began a long coaching career; he has coached many successful teams and players. Buck was also the assistant coach at Charlotte Latin School where he earned nine state football titles over 20 years.
