Butler wide receiver Kiante Northington had a good junior year, but hopes to have a bigger year as a senior in hopes of earning a scholarship offer.
Butler had an up and down season this year, falling in the first round of the playoffs to Ballard. But the 5-6 squad received a standout performance from 5-foot-9, 160-pound receiver through 10 games had 28 catches for 501 yards and five touchdowns.
“I played real well but next year I’m hoping to have a breakout season,” said Northington. “I mostly improved on my yards after the catch,” he said.
Northington, a two sport star, is also playing playing basketball, but he’s knows what he has to do to get better for next season.
“Right now I’m playing basketball, but after that I’m going to just work on speed, speed, speed,” Northington said.
While there are no offers on the table for him, he plans to make that change next year as he leads Butler to the next level as a senior.
“We can be real good next year. We got a lot of returning starters. Next year I’m just going to work hard and lead my team. I’m going to work hard this off-season and be unstoppable next season,” he said.
