Join Butch's Team!

For over 50 years, Middlebury students have been "picking up Butch," a member of our Middlebury community with cerebral palsy. While basketball and football players have long brought Butch to one another’s games, team participation has expanded. All students are invited to join the team to bring Butch outdoors, support his physical therapy at Helen Porter Nursing Home, eat at the Grille, take in a movie, and more!

Over the years, Butch's relationship with the College has received significant national attention, including CBS' Eye to Eye with Katie Couric, ESPN's E:60, and this Emmy-award winning segment on ESPN's SportsCenter, below.
