Axon leads Butler to top JUCO ranking

The theme for Butler Community College has not changed all season: When it doubt go to big Ben.

That is Ben Axon not the other Ben from the NFL team called the Steelers.

Axon, the former Manatee High standout, had another solid Axon like game when he rushed for 119 yards on 25 carries and scored two touchdowns to lead Butler to a 35-12 victory over Garden City Community College last week.

The victory pushed Butler to number 1 in the National Junior College rankings replacing Mississippi Gulf Coast Community College, which lost its first game of the season last week, 30-27 to Pearl River Community College.

The 6-2, 200 pound Axon leads Butler with 490 yards on 102 carries (4.7 avg) and has registered five touchdowns. He has provided the spark for the Grizzlies, who are undefeated in six games and 4-0 in the Jayhawk Conference.
