Where are they now - James Butler

Great story on James Butler.

James is a fine Christian young man who excelled in the classroom as well as in the athletic venues at Bainbridge High School and Georgia Tech.

I’ll never forget what he told me when I was interviewing him at his home in Climax one day when he was home from college. I asked him if he would like to play professional football some day. His answer was swift and firm.

"If the Lord is willing, I would like to give it a try, but with a degree from Georgia Tech, I will be all right anyway," he said.

James is a young man who has his priorities in order. He loves his Lord, loves his family and loves his fellow man. He has made all of us in Bainbridge and Decatur County proud.
