Dave Butz Set for Sept. 27 NFF Hall of Fame On-Campus Salute

IRVING, Texas  (Sept. 25, 2014) – Purdue and The National Football Foundation (NFF) & College Hall of Fame announced today that they will jointly honor Dave Butz with an NFF Hall of Fame On-Campus Salute Sept. 27 in West Lafayette during the game between Purdue and Iowa. Coverage of the game will start at Noon ET on the Big Ten Network.

“This is indeed a great honor,” Butz said in a Purdue release after the announcement in May. “There are a lot of great ball players in the College Football Hall of Fame, and I am very pleased to be a part of it. I had an outstanding group of teammates at Purdue, and I'm very happy to represent them and the university.”

The NFF Hall of Fame On-Campus Salute program is a hallowed tradition that began with the inaugural class in 1951, and to this day the salutes remain the first of numerous activities in each inductee’s Hall of Fame experience. During the NFF Hall of Fame On-Campus Salutes, each inductee returns to his alma mater to accept a Hall of Fame plaque that will remain on permanent display at the institution. The events take place on the field during a home game, and many inductees cite the experience as the ultimate capstone to their careers, providing them one more chance to take the field and hear the crowd roar their name.

A member of Purdue’s All-Time Team, defensive stalwart Butz earned First Team All-America honors during his Hall of Fame career as a Boilermaker from 1970-72.

“Dave Butz was a force to be reckoned with on the football field,” said NFF President and CEO
Steve Hatchell. “His size and athletic ability allowed him to terrorize offensive linemen during his Boilermaker career. We are thrilled to honor him in front of the Purdue faithful at Ross-Ade Stadium.”

Q's Hornet Buzz

September 26, 2014

WINCHESTER, Va. – Sophomore Qlyl Middelijn is in his first year of blogging about the football team. This week, in his fourth edition of the "Huddle Buzz", Q recaps a big victory
#18 Qlyl Middelijn
this past Saturday night.

Shutting out Ferrum 45-20 is a massive confidence boost for the team. We battled long and hard for 60 minutes last Saturday night against a tough opponent. The game didn't come down to what Ferrum did or how the referees officiated the game, it came down to what we needed to do to win.
We prepared physically and mentally for the game. Sophomore Deshon Brown caught two touchdown passes and freshman Josh White was named ODAC defensive Player of the Week after snagging two interceptions.
The offense produced 552 yards with 420 on the ground. The last time SU Football produced this amount of offense was back in 2004 in the championship-clinching contest against Methodist.
The Hornets came out hungry and won at home.
This week is our bye week and our main focus as a team has been to take care of our bodies. Coach Yoder emphasizes the importance of maintaining our health - he encourages us to visit the athletic trainers and get any and everything done to ensure we will be 100% for our rivalry game against Bridgewater next Saturday night.
Bridgewater will not be taken lightly, as we have an extra week of time to prepare for them. This is a break for us because BC had its bye last week and will only have one week to prepare for us.
This will be our first ODAC game and we encourage everyone to come out and show your support. This will be a tough battle but all battles are tough. We will come out victorious.
Go Hornets!
