Axon turns in best game of season

Ben Axon turned in one of his best games of the season in the biggest junior college football game of the season last week leading No. 1 Butler Community College to a 28-0 victory over No. 2 Hutchinson.

The former Manatee High standout ran for a season high 141 yards on 33 carries and scored two touchdowns to spark the victory. He leads the Grizzlies on the season with 806 rushing yards and nine touchdowns.

Butler finishes its regular season with a 9-0 record and is off this weekend and will be the top seed in the JUCO Region VI playoffs that begin Sunday November 7th.

Axon is averaging 4.6 yards per carry and 89.6 rushing yards per game despite playing only half the game in many instances because his team is so far ahead.

He is on course to graduate this spring, which would make him eligible to play for an NCAA FBS team next season. The 6-2, 205 pound sophomore has been offered by Iowa State and been in contact with Western Kentucky, which is coached by Willie Taggart, another Manatee High standout.
