Butler, a former Georgia Tech Yellow Jacket All-Atlantic Coast Conference defensive back, was a member of the 2007 Super Bowl XLII champion New York Giants. He currently plays for the St. Louis Rams.

Butler said he is looking forward to conducting the camp again.

“I am very excited about the opportunity to give back to the community that did so much for me as a child, and offered tremendous support during the course of my career,” he said. “It is my hope that through this year’s camp I may enhance not only participants skills, but also their confidence in themselves and their future and character.”
