College career

Butler played under head coach Bobby Bowden at Florida State University. He was a three-year starter, collecting 194 tackles and 9 interceptions, but is most remembered by FSU fans for his role in the "puntrooskie"[2]. In 1988, against rival Clemson, FSU was backed up to their own 21 yard line on fourth down with 1:30 left to play and the score tied at 21. Bowden called the famous trick play, a fake punt. After the snap, the ball was slipped to Butler, who ran 78 yards to set up the game winning field goal.

He is credited with inventing the Lambeau Leap[4] - a touchdown celebration in which the scoring player leaps into the arms of awaiting fans in the stands near the end zone. On December 26, 1993, the Packers were playing the visiting Los Angeles Raiders. On a second-down swing pass to running back Randy Jordan, Butler forced a fumble that was recovered by Reggie White at the Raiders' 35. After running with the ball for 10 yards, White lateraled to Butler, who ran the remaining 25 yards into the end zone and then made a spontaneous leap into the arms of fans in the south bleachers. The Packers went on to win 28-0 to clinch what would be the first of six consecutive playoff berths. The move was later popularized by wide receiver Robert Brooks, who carried it a step further by leaping completely into the stands. This move is called the Lambeau Leap, and now is used after some Packer touchdowns. The new Lambeau field shortly after being renovated. ...
