Richard Butler Lettered In 1982, 1983, and 1984

No...that is not a typo. Most of you know Clemson great Jerry Butler. But did you also know that his brother, Richard Butler, played for the Tigers as well?

Today's photo was taken at the 1982 Clemson vs. Wake Forest game (Mirage Bowl) in Tokyo, Japan during the 1982 season. Richard Butler was a reserve wide receiver at Clemson from 1982-1984 finishing his career with 26 receptions for 349 yards and one touchdown.

A few years ago, Butler participated in the Clemson "Sons" game during the Spring Game. Here is a picture from the Orange and White Game of Butler making a "tackle" during the game.
