Former Raider finishes 3rd at NCAA Division II Wrestling Championships

March 16th - Cleveland, OH -  Former Port Jervis Red Raider Steven Butler placed third in the NCAA Division II Wrestling Championships held March 16th in Cleveland, OH.  Wrestling for Lindenwood University (MO) in the 285lb heavyweight class, Butler's third place finish helped Lindenwood finish the year ranked 3rd in the nation.

Butler's quest for a national title was halted by Ziad Hassad of Kutztown University.  Hassad defeated Butler 5-2 on his way to the national title at heavyweight.  Steven Butler - Wrestling for Lindenwood University

Butler, an All-American wrestler for Lindenwood has had a storied career, met with some major hurdles and challenges.  Butler's wrestling resume is quite impressive.  At Port Jervis, Butler was a 3-time Section IX Champion, finished 2nd in the 2009 New York State Wrestling Tournament, and took home the top spot in the Ohio Tournament of Champions.

From Port Jervis, Butler took his skills to Newberry University, (SC), a school which heavily recruited him.  in 2010, Butler sustained a serious elbow injury and had the ligaments surgically reattached. In 2011 he was recruited to Division II Lindenwood University in St. Charles (MO). While playing for the Lindenwood Lions football team as defensive guard, Butler suffered a torn ACL in his right knee. After surgery, Butler transferred to University of Buffalo (NY) to wrestle where he experienced a torn meniscus and had yet a third surgery. Uncertain of any future in college athletics, he returned to Lindenwood in 2013 where he battled back and became the NCAA "Wrestler of the Week" twice in February, 2014 and won first place in the Midwest Regionals and qualified to compete in the national championship.

Lindenwood's wrestling coach Chad Smith said of his 285 heavyweight's contributions to the team after he won first place in the Midwestern States, "...and Steven Butler was...Butler. He did what he always does, day-in and day out."

Injuries can be a deterrent to the average athlete, but they do not defeat a champion like Butler. The future is yet to be determined for him as he was red-shirted in 2011 and may be allowed to wrestle and play football next year. He is a model of sheer determination and diligence that the tri-state community can be proud of and young athletes may see as an example of pursuing excellence, persevering through hard work and attaining high athletic achievements.
