A guard, Butterfield was the emotional and physical heart and soul leader of Yuba College this past season. The sophomore could shoot with range, attack the rim and defend, and he had little regard for his body. Butterfield crashed for rebounds or onto the floor for a loose ball. Yuba coach Doug Cornelius called Butterfield the most competitive athlete he has coached, a "grinder and a grunt." Both powered the 49ers to the state championship game, just the third boys team in regional history to pull that feat.
The 6-foot-3 Butterfield averaged 15 points and seven rebounds.
