Asbury Adds Attackman Jake Butler from Ohio
MASSILLON, Ohio - The Asbury men's lacrosse team added a scoring threat to their inaugural recruiting class on Wednesday as Jake Butler, a senior from Massillon, Ohio, signed to play for the Eagles in 2014-15.
"Jake called me up last week and said 'I'm coming to Asbury'," head coach Josh Stewart said at the signing. "I was ecstatic about it because I knew when I met Jake and when I had seen his film that he would be a great addition for our offense and our program as a whole."
Butler, a senior at Cuyahoga Valley Christian Academy in Stow, Ohio, scored 45 goals and registered eight assists for the Royals as a junior and will bring his scoring presence to the AU field next season.
Butler is also the first signee from the state of the Ohio. He joins the recruits already signed from Kentucky, Tennessee, Florida, and California on the inaugural roster for the Eagles in 2014-15.
Coach Stewart and the Eagles continue to build the first ever roster for the 2015 season and invite anyone interested- whether a current senior in high school or not- to explore the option of playing lacrosse at Asbury.
